Pham went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs, a walk and a strikeout in a 3-0 triumph over the Rockies on Thursday. Batting first, Pham scored after doubling in the first inning for the only run Joe Musgrove and the Padres would require, singled in the third and walked and scored in the eighth. The hits snap an 0-for-15 stretch with eight strikeouts covering four games, though Pham still sports a respectable .258/.369/.414 slash line with a balanced 11 home runs and 13 steals while recording 56 walks, 12th most in MLB.
Pham went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 win over the Marlins. He took Zach Thompson deep in the first inning, giving the Padres an early lead they wouldn't relinquish. Pham has been locked in since the All-Star break, batting a cool .400 (10-for-25) over seven games with two of his 11 homers on the year.
Pham is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with Atlanta. Pham will take a seat for the nightcap after he went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in San Diego's 3-2 win in the opening game of the day. Jurickson Profar will cover left field in Pham's stead.
Pham (knee) is starting in left field and batting leadoff Monday against Atlanta.

Pham has put on an offensive clinic since returning from the All-Star break, going 8-for-12 with a homer, a double, three walks, three RBI, eight runs and a stolen base in three games.
