Mendez (2-1) pitched well in picking up the win over the Padres on Friday. He tossed five scoreless innings of relief, allowing three hits and three walks with five strikeouts.

He was called upon after "opener" Connor Sadzeck went one scoreless inning. Mendez has managed to drop his ERA from 14.73 to 3.86 over his last 15 innings, as he's given up just two runs and seven hits over that span. Mendez will look to continue his hot streak against the Rays on Wednesday.
