  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Stellar in final start

    Musgrove limited the Giants to one run on three hits with four strikeouts over five innings Saturday. He did not factor in the decision.

    After a wobbly September (5.14 ERA in five starts), Musgrove closed out his 2021 season with a terrific showing by limiting San Francisco to a Kris Bryant RBI single in the second inning. He also put up a zero in the walk column for the first time since May 30. Musgrove went 11-9 in his first season in San Diego and established personal bests in ERA (3.18), innings pitched (181.1), strikeouts (203), WHIP (1.08) and opponents' batting average (.213). He also threw a pair of shutouts, the first of his career.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: No-decision Sunday

    Musgrove didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Atlanta after allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks across five innings, striking out nine.

    Musgrove hadn't fanned that many batters since he posted two back-to-back nine-strikeout performances in late August, but the fact that he's also issued at least three walks in four straight appearances might be a bit concerning. The veteran hurler has also given up at least three runs in each of his last four appearances and owns a 5.14 ERA across five appearances this month.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Surrenders five runs

    Musgrove got a no-decision in Tuesday's 6-5 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 5.2 innings

    Facing Kevin Gausman and the Giants in consecutive turns, Musgrove pitched well early and was staked to a 4-1 lead but struggled the third time through the order, surrendering four runs combined over the fifth and sixth innings. The subpar outing ends a five-game stretch where he permitted no more than three runs in any start. Musgrove now sports a 5.09 ERA across four September turns. He currently lines up to face Atlanta on Sunday.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Earns win over Giants

    Musgrove (11-9) earned the win over San Francisco on Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings.

    For his second straight outing, Musgrove yielded exactly three runs over six frames, but whereas his last start resulted in a loss, the Padres gave the right-hander enough run support to notch a win Wednesday. The 28-year-old wasn't overpowering -- he induced only six swinging strikes and picked up just four punchouts -- but he was able to register his eighth quality start in his past 10 appearances. Musgrove will carry a 2.99 ERA into his next start, which is likely to come in a rematch with San Francisco -- this time at home -- early next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Gets no offensive support Friday

    Musgrove (10-9) suffered the loss against the Dodgers on Friday, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on four hits and five walks while striking out seven.

    The performance was not among Musgrove's best as a Padre -- he issued a season-high five walks and gave up three runs for the first time since Aug. 14 -- but he still managed to secure his third quality start in his past four outings. However, San Diego's offense remained stale against the division-rival Dodgers, resulting in the right-hander's ninth loss. Musgrove's so-so 10-9 record doesn't do justice to his effectiveness on the campaign, as he has posted a 2.93 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 180:45 K:BB across 159.2 innings. His next start is likely to come in San Francisco next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Picks up 10th win

    Musgrove (10-8) earned the win over Houston on Saturday, hurling 5.1 innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four.

    Musgrove allowed at least one baserunner in each of the six frames during which he took the mound and needed 100 pitches to get through 5.1 innings, but he was able to navigate around constant traffic to hold Houston to just two runs. The right-hander has held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in seven of his past eight starts, with the lone exception being an Aug. 14 blowup against Arizona. Musgrove has looked like the ace of the Padres' staff this season, leading all starters in wins (10), ERA (2.87), WHIP (1.01) and strikeouts (173).His next start is likely to take place in Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Friday.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Fires complete-game gem

    Musgrove (9-8) allowed three hits and two walks over nine shutout innings Friday, striking out nine and earning a win over the Angels.

    Musgrove dominated Friday, allowing just one Angel into scoring position in his second shutout of the year. He finished at least seven innings for the first time in August and has given up two or fewer runs in six of his last seven outings. Friday's masterpiece lowered his season ERA to 2.85 alongside a 169:39 K:BB through 148.1 innings. Musgrove is projected to face Houston at home next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Settles for no-decision Saturday

    Musgrove pitched six innings against Philadelphia on Saturday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out nine. He did not factor in the decision.

    The right-hander surrendered a home run to leadoff hitter Odubel Herrera in the first inning, but that was the only tally the Phillies could muster against Musgrove in the contest. The quality start was Musgrove's fifth in his past six games, and he has registered a 2.75 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 10.3 K/9 over that span. His next start is tentatively scheduled to come against the Dodgers next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Roughed up in loss

    Musgrove (8-8) allowed six earned runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings, taking the loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Musgrove allowed a season-high 10 hits and six earned runs Saturday. He was outdone by opposing pitcher Tyler Gilbert's no-hitter. Musgrove surrendered a three-run homer to Drew Ellis as a part of a five-run first inning. The 28-year-old broke his streak of four straight quality starts. He carries a 3.11 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 151 strikeouts in 133.1 innings. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Phillies.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Posts quality start

    Musgrove (8-7) earned the win Monday against Miami after tossing six innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and a walk while fanning eight.

    Musgrove has been nothing short of outstanding of late, going undefeated in each of his last five starts and pitching at least six frames in his last four appearances. He's also posted four straight quality starts and hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of those four contests. The right-hander owns a sterling 1.44 ERA across 25 innings during that four-game stretch.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Yields solo homer in no-decision

    Musgrove allowed a run on two hits, three walks and a pair of hit batters while striking out five in six innings in a no-decision versus Oakland on Wednesday.

    Musgrove didn't have the best control Wednesday, but he was only punished on a second-inning solo shot by Jed Lowrie. The 28-year-old right-hander has strung together three straight quality starts, allowing just three runs in his last 19 innings. He has a 2.87 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 139:32 K:BB across 122.1 innings this season. Musgrove is projected to make his next start versus Miami next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Seven shutout innings

    Musgrove (7-7) won Thursday's 3-0 victory over Colorado, allowing three hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts in seven innings.

    Musgrove required just 91 pitches to last seven frames, retiring the last eight Rockies he faced and striking out five in a row at one point. The excellent showing lowered his ERA to 2.94, a top-15 mark in MLB. The 11 whiffs are Musgrove's most since June 12.
