Padres Win Fifth Straight With New Additions, O’s Sweep Rangers, Urias Gets Eight In A Row

Jonathan Grant | August 4th, 2022

The San Diego Padres are “all in” as far as the 2022 season is concerned, and they look to have, so far, made the right decision at the table if Wednesday is any indication to go by. Following up a big day on Tuesday in which they landed Juan Soto and won two games, they won 9-1 on Wednesday over the Colorado Rockies to record a fifth straight ‘W.’ And to make things even better, their new players all contributed well.


Brandon Drury stole the show a bit, hitting a grand slam on his first at-bat that produced nearly half the team’s runs while Juan Soto and Josh Bell also scored runs in a productive showing. Elsewhere, the new-look Baltimore Orioles keep on winning, downing the Texas Rangers to complete a sweep of that team for the first time in franchise history. The 6-3 win in Arlington saw six different players accrue RBI’s, putting the O’s three games over .500 when they are supposed to not even be in contention. Finally, we wrap up with Julio Urias and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Despite the Padres’ hard work of late, they are still 11.5 behind after Wednesday as the Dodgers won 3-0 in San Francisco against the Giants. The hosts got some hits off Urias, who recorded his eighth victory in a row on the mound, but they couldn’t muster a run, and the hitting of Miguel Vargas, who had two RBI’s, was enough to push the NL West leaders to the win.
