Hosmer went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Hosmer took Brad Ziegler deep in the eighth inning to record his 18th homer of the season. It was his fifth home run of September, though that couldn't save him from his least productive campaign since 2014. Across 672 plate appearances, he's managed to hit just .252/.320/.398 with 68 RBI and 72 runs scored.
Hosmer is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Hosmer will retreat to the bench for what looks to be a routine day off after starting the past 37 games, hitting .231/.299/.406 with six homers and 18 RBI over that stretch. Jose Pirela is starting at first base and hitting seventh in Wednesday's series finale.
Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer against the Rangers on Saturday. Hosmer took Ariel Jurado deep in the third inning and accounted for all of the Padres' offense Saturday. He now has 17 home runs, four of which have come in the past eight days. Even with the power surge, he's had a disappointing season, with his RBI and run totals at their lowest points since 2014.
Hosmer went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in the 7-6 win over the Reds on Sunday. Hosmer has gone deep in three straight games, giving him 16 with 62 RBI this season. Those three homers match his best monthly total since May, and he still has plenty of time left in September.
Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 12-6 loss to the Reds. Hosmer delivered an RBI single in the first inning, followed by a two-run blast to left in the eighth, although the Padres would lose the contest. He's off to a sluggish start in September, going 4-for-19 with five walks and four runs scored through six games, so he'll look to turn things around at the dish down the stretch.
