Pomeranz was tagged with a blown save in Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Giants, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks while retiring two batters (both by strikeout). Pomeranz entered the contest having held opponents scoreless over 18 innings through 19 appearances, but his remarkable run came to an end when Wilmer Flores crushed a three-run homer after Pomeranz allowed a single and a walk with two outs in the sixth inning. Though the blast gave San Francisco a two-run lead, Pomeranz was able to escape without taking the loss when Trent Grisham blasted a three-run walkoff homer in the following frame. Despite the rough outing, Pomeranz still owns a 1.45 ERA and 1.02 WHIP this season.

Pomeranz earned the hold in Sunday's win over Oakland, pitching one scoreless inning, allowing one walk and striking out two. With Trevor Rosenthal now in the fold and performing well for San Diego, Pomeranz may settle back into a full-time role as the team's primary setup man. The left-hander last picked up a save Aug. 11 against the Dodgers, though he spent 10 days on the injured list in late August. Regardless of the inning in which he's pitched, Pomeranz has been dominant in 2020, holding opponents scoreless over 13 appearances (12 innings) while registering a 17:5 K:BB. He has four saves to go along with six holds and has posted a 0.67 WHIP.
Pomeranz gave up one hit in a scoreless inning Saturday against Colorado. Pomeranz returned to action after a minimum stay on the injured list and looked sharp, needing only 12 pitches (nine strikes) to navigate his way through the frame. He gave up a single to Nolan Arenado leading off the inning but subsequently induced a double-play grounder and another groundout. Pomeranz is likely to return to a setup role with San Diego's acquisition of closer Trevor Rosenthal on Saturday.
