Padres vs. Mets prediction: Take a shot on Blake Snell

Two million runs have been scored in MLB history. Ricky Henderson has 2,295 of them, but the most bizarre run was the one Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil made when they saw a rat in the tunnel. McNeil hasn’t been seen since. Mets return to the scene of “The Run,”...

Padres' Blake Snell: Tagged with loss

Snell (2-3) gave up three runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts across four innings, taking the loss versus the Mets on Friday. Snell had little trouble through four innings, but he allowed four straight batters to reach in the fifth before Austin Adams relieved him. It was a disappointing setback for Snell, who threw seven shutout innings versus the Mets in his previous start. The southpaw has an uninspiring 4.97 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 84:35 K:BB across 58 innings this year. He's failed to complete five innings in five of his last seven starts. The 28-year-old lines up for a home start versus Cincinnati next week.

Padres' Blake Snell had hilarious quote about his changeup issues

Blake Snell was outstanding for the San Diego Padres on Friday night, and he managed to be that way even though his fourth pitch abandoned him. Snell threw seven one-hit innings against the New York Mets, striking out 10 and walking only one. His fastball, slider and curveball were all working perfectly, but the same couldn’t be said of his changeup. Snell threw only three of them during the entire start, none of which went for strikes.

Blake Snell dominant on Friday

Blake Snell gave up no earned runs in seven innings pitched in the Padres' win over the Mets on Friday. Snell struck out ten and walked one in the outing. Snell had his best performance as a Padre on Friday. Snell has struggled the most with his changeup this year, and he threw less of that pitch on Friday night. If Snell ditches the changeup and relies exclusively on his fastball/slider/curveball, there could be more performances like this to come this season. Snell's ERA still isn't pretty at 4.83. It's only early June, so Snell can still turn his year around, but dreams of a Cy Young caliber year in his debut season in San Diego are likely gone. Continue to treat him as a matchup dependent starter until he proves he can take this form beyond a single outing.

Mets dominated by Blake Snell in shutout loss to Padres

SAN DIEGO — Joey Lucchesi was supposed to be the bigger concern for the Mets than Blake Snell among Friday’s starting pitchers, but that script got thoroughly flipped. In his homecoming, the inconsistent Lucchesi was just fine. Snell, meanwhile, was close to unhittable for the Padres, sending the Mets to a 2-0 loss at Petco Park. The loss was the third in four games for the Mets, who were perhaps just fortunate to avoid getting no-hit.

Padres’ Blake Snell loses no-hit bid in 7th vs Mets

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres left-hander Blake Snell lost a no-hit bid Friday night with no outs in the seventh inning when New York Mets star Francisco Lindor lined a clean single to left field. Outfielder Tommy Pham misplayed the ball, allowing Lindor to reach third on a two-base error.

Blake Snell Lost Something

When the Padres traded for Blake Snell, they thought they were getting an ace. It wasn’t long ago that Snell was one of the best per-inning starters in baseball. Walks may have been an issue, and he didn’t always stay healthy, but Snell was one of the most potent starters in baseball when he was on the mound. These past two calendar years, though, Snell has been anything but consistently dominant.

Padres' Blake Snell: Dazzles against Mets

Snell (2-2) earned the win Friday against the Mets after tossing seven scoreless innings, allowing one hit and walking one while striking out 10. Snell has fanned seven or more in four of his last five outings and has recorded two double-digit strikeout games in that stretch, but this was his best game of the season by a wide margin, especially since he had given up 12 earned runs across 6.2 innings over his previous two appearances. The left-hander saw his ERA decrease to 4.83. While he's lacked consistency all season long, this outing should be a massive confidence booster for him. His next start is scheduled for next week on the road against the Mets once again.
