He needed 16 pitches to strike out all three batters he faced, and he picked up the win as a result of Brandon Marsh's homer in the top of the following frame. Mayers has struck out 82 batters in 66.1 innings this season while notching a career-high 15 holds and two saves.

The right-hander was selected to open the Angels' bullpen game, and he made it through the first inning without incident. However, the Padres drove Mayers from the contest in the second, converting a walk and a double into a run before pummeling a pair of subsequent relievers for seven additional runs. Mayers has pitched to a 4.34 ERA and 77:21 K:BB across 64.1 innings this season. He's struggled of late, posting a 7.36 ERA over his past six outings.

The 29-year-old righty owns a 4.23 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 75:20 K:BB over 61.2 innings.

He has a 4.07 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 74:20 K:BB over 59.2 innings this season.
