Gore allowed one earned run on two hits and a walk while striking out eight across 4.2 innings Thursday while pitching with the Peoria Padres of the Arizona Complex League.

Gore was in official game action for the first time since June 18. The outing was impressive, though that should be expected given the level of competition. Even so, it was a positive step forward for Gore, who was expected to be a regular part of the major-league rotation by this point in the season. Given his lack of work, reaching San Diego in 2021 may no longer be realistic for Gore. On the other hand, ending the season on a strong note could set him up to make an impact at the big-league level in 2022.
