SAN DIEGO – It is pretty clear how San Diego Padres manager Andy Green is approaching the final games of the 2018 season.The final series against the Arizona Diamondbacks is a continuing audition process for the three rookie pitchers in the Padres’ rotation.Each game features a Padres rookie going out against a Diamondback veteran.Article continues below ...On Friday night http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-tim-beckham-jersey , rookie left-hander Eric Lauer held his own against Arizona veteran Patrick Corbin, and the Padres won the game 3-2 in 15 innings.Saturday night will feature Padres right-hander Jacob Nix making his ninth major league start, while Arizona goes with Zack Godley. And in Sunday’s season finale, the most seasoned of the Padres’ rookie starters, left-hander Joey Lucchesi, faces another veteran left-hander in Arizona’s Robbie Ray.The fact that the three rookies have started consecutive games on the final two weekends of the season — at Dodger Stadium and the final home weekend at Petco Park — is no coincidence.“I wanted to see them in the pressure at Dodger Stadium and again at home over the final three days of the season,” said Padres manager Andy Green. “It’s a chance to make the most of the situation.”The 22-year-old Nix, the Padres’ third-round pick in the 2015 draft, will also be seeking some redemption Saturday night.He will be facing the Diamondbacks for the second time. And the first time didn’t go very well. In fact Anthony Santander Jersey , it was the worst outing of his eight major-league starts. On Aug. 16 at Petco Park, in his second major league start, Nix gave up five runs on five hits and two walks with a strikeout in just two-thirds of an inning against Arizona. One of the hits was a three-run homer by David Peralta.His most recent start didn’t go particularly well, either. Last Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, Nix gave up six runs on six hits in just 2 1/3 innings.Overall, Nix is 2-4 on the season with a 6.81 earned run average, a .303 opponents’ batting average and a 1.88 WHIP. Nix is 2-2 in five starts at Petco Park with a 4.67 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and a .279 opponents’ batting average. Left-handed hitters are batting .314 against Nix while right-handers are hitting .290.Godley will be making his 33rd appearance of the season for the Diamondbacks and his 32nd start. He is 14-11 with a 4.75 ERA, a .261 opponents’ batting average and a 1.46 WHIP.Godley has not won a decision in September and has lost four straight starts since Aug. 29 – the most recent defeat coming on Sunday against the Rockies although he allowed only two runs on six hits over five innings.Godley is 2-1 this season against the Padres despite a 5.24 ERA in five games (four starts). He has given up 13 earned runs in 22 1/3 innings.He is 3-4 lifetime against the Padres with a 5.40 ERA http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-brach-jersey , allowing 35 runs in 58 1/3 innings over 14 games (10 starts). He is 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA during his career at Petco Park, where he has given up 16 runs in just 22 innings.Godley is 8-6 on the road this season with a 5.52 ERA in 17 starts. PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks are playing downhill baseball and moving up the standings.Nick Ahmed homered twice and had four RBIs, Steven Souza Jr. drove in three more runs and the Diamondbacks jumped on the San Francisco Giants early for a 9-3 victory on Saturday night.“Just momentum, you score first in the game — I don’t know what the percentages are — but you have much higher likelihood to win the game,” Ahmed said. “We just try to jump out, attack early and have been doing a good job of that lately.”Souza hit a two-run triple and Ketel Marte hit a two-run homer off Andrew Suarez (4-7) in Arizona’s second-straight five-run first inning against the Giants. Arizona leads the majors with 92 first-inning runs and moved a game ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West after winning for the third time in four games.Ahmed had run-scoring single in the first, a two-run homer in the fifth and a solo shot in the eighth.“When I talk about downhill baseball, we eliminate a lot of the noise and go out there and play the game the way we know how,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said.Steven Duggar hit his first career home run and Andrew McCutchen had a solo shot for the only runs off Clay Buchholz (5-1) Colby Rasmus Jersey , who won his fourth straight start. Buchholz struck out Evan Longoria with runners on second and third in the fourth inning, then put the Giants down in order the next two innings.McCutchen had five hits and two RBIs from the leadoff spot.“The leadoff hitter gets five hits, a home run, RBI double and you think we are in the game, but unfortunately we weren’t,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.The Diamondbacks jumped on starter Chris Stratton for five runs in the first inning of Friday’s win and did the same against Suarez.Souza had a two-run triple and Ahmed followed with a run-scoring single. Marte made it 2-0 with a no-doubt two-run homer to center, his 10th of the season. Marte joins Stephen Drew (three times), Steve Finley (twice) and David Peralta as the only Arizona players with 10 homers and 10 triples in a season.Souza had a run-scoring double that just missed going out in center in the fifth inning. Ahmed followed with a shot to left that did clear the wall for a two-run homer to put Arizona up 8-2.Suarez allowed eight runs on 10 hits in five innings.“I fell behind in the count, they took advantage of it http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-craig-gentry-jersey ,” Suarez said. “I had some good pitches and they hit them.”Buchholz was sharp except for a couple of breaking balls: One that McCutchen hit for a solo homer in the third inning, another Duggar hit for a solo shot in the fourth.Buchholz allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings.AHMED’S RISEAhmed was known mostly for his glove his first four big-league seasons, hitting no more than nine homers and a career-best of 34 RBIs.The 28-year-old shortstop has found his grove at the plate this season with 16 homers and 57 RBIs. His 16 homers are third in Diamondbacks history by a shortstop, behind Stephen Drew’s 21 in 2008 and Jay Bell’s 18 in 1998.“I feel like he was never satisfied with just being a great defender who was going to put the bat on the ball,” Lovullo said. “He wanted to excel in both areas. He has a really good mindset that he wants to be great. I think that motivates him every day.”GIANTS MOVESSan Francisco recalled RHPs Derek Law and Pierce Johnson from Triple-A Sacramento prior to Saturday’s game, and optioned Stratton and infielder Kelby Tomlinson to the River Cats. Stratton struggled against the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing six runs on 10 hits in three innings of a 6-3 loss.TRAINER’S TABLEGiants: C Buster Posey was held out of the lineup under concussion protocol after leaving Friday’s game due to a foul ball off his mask. He worked in the field before Saturday’s game and could play Sunday if he remains symptom free.Diamondbacks: Lovullo returned to the dugout after missing Friday’s game due to an illness.UP NEXTArizona LHP Robbie Ray is 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA in 10 career starts against the Giants heading into Sunday’s season finale. Giants starter Derek Holland is 0-1 with a 4.61 ERA in three career starts against the Diamondbacks.
