Stammen allowed one run on two hits, taking his seventh blown save of the year in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Braves. Stammen allowed a game-tying solo home run to Ronald Acuna in the seventh inning of Saturday's contest. Stammen's seven blown saves dubiously lead the majors in that category, though most of them could more accurately be called "blown holds." He has a serviceable 3.94 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 48 innings this season, having accumulated four saves and 19 holds as a regular set-up man to closer Kirby Yates. Stammen had only blown nine saves in his previous nine seasons, with five of them coming last year.
Stammen (6-4) picked up the win Friday after holding the Dodgers scoreless with two hits and a strikeout over 1.1 innings. With the score tied 2-2, Stammen came into the game in the seventh inning to replace starter Eric Lauer. The 35-year-old successfully prevented the potent Dodger lineup from causing any damage as both of the hits he allowed were singles. A two-out home run by Hunter Renfroe in the eighth then boosted the Padres ahead to win the game. The veteran setup man has been mostly solid for San Diego this year, compiling a 4.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:7 K:BB over 41 appearances.
Stammen struck out three in 1.1 perfect innings of relief to record his fourth save of the season in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Orioles. He entered the game with the bases loaded in the eighth inning after Cal Quantrill had walked in a run -- technically a save situation, with the tying run on deck despite the five-run cushion -- and Stammen fanned Dwight Smith to end the threat before breezing through the ninth. The veteran reliever now has a 4.46 ERA and 32:7 K:BB through 40.1 innings on the year, with five wins and 16 holds to go with his saves.
Stammen gave up a hit and two walks in 1.1 scoreless innings while striking out one to record his third save of the season in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Brewers. With Kirby Yates having pitched on three straight days and four of the last five, the Padres closer got the day off and left ninth-inning duties to Stammen, who got the job done despite issuing multiple free passes for the first time all year. The veteran setup man now sports a 3.79 ERA and 29:5 K:BB through 38 innings, and Stammen has five wins and 16 holds to go along with his saves.
Stammen (5-3) picked up the win Friday against the Rockies after tossing a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and striking out two. Stammen came into the 11th inning with the game tied at 11 and managed to keep the Rockies from scoring. The Padres took advantage by tacking on five runs in the 12th inning to gift Stammen with the win. The right-hander had a few ugly recent outings, but overall has a 4.04 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 26:3 K:BB over 33 appearances.
