Musgrove (8-1) raised his ERA from 1.59, the second lowest among the majors, to 2.12. The big right-hander from suburban El Cajon was activated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier in the day. He was placed on the list last Friday, a day after throwing seven strong innings in a win over the Chicago Cubs.

“We hit a few balls hard,” Schwarber said. “The guy’s a good pitcher. He’s got the stuff and he’s got four or five pitches; two really-plus breaking balls. We capitalized on a few mistakes. We threw some good at-bats together and that’s how you go.” Going to defeat the people.

“I’ve seen him for a long time going back to his Pittsburgh days,” Schwarber said. “It’s always been good stuff. I’m not surprised by the year he’s been through, but obviously it was really cool to go out there and beat him.”

Musgrove cruised through four hitless innings before an RBI single by Odubel Herrera tied it for 1.

The Phillies then jumped on Musgrove in sixth, which included two long balls that barely came off Petco Park.

Bryson Stott hit a leadoff double in center field off Schwarber’s homer, who hit something behind the fence and bounced back onto the field. It was his 20th. Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos hit consecutive singles each before Realmuto hit an opposite-field shot from the top of the right-field wall. This was his fourth overall and the first since May 26.

“We’ve got some good batsmen on him now,” said Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson. “We did grind a bit and once we got some momentum we kept it up. We got some energy and just kept rolling with it. ,

Musgrove allowed six runs and seven hits in six innings, with only one strikeout and one walk. This year it was the first time he allowed more than two earned runs.

The big innings won Ranger Suárez (6–4), who finished eighth this season for the first time. He allowed two runs and seven hits in 7 1/3 innings, scoring two of three.

Eric Hosmer took second, sixth place. The Padres added a run in the eighth on Jorge Alfaro’s groundout.

Machado Update

Padres slugger Manny Machado missed his fourth straight game with a sprain in his left ankle, but did some agility drills and caught on-field, and then hit a tee in the indoor batting cage. San Diego manager Bob Melvin was a keen observer from the dugout. “I don’t know how he does it. You really see the discoloration, what it looks like, the swelling has gone down but it doesn’t feel like it feels great,” said Melvin. “I don’t think so Anything with him at the moment surprises me.”

The Padres think that Machado, who has had an MVP-caliber season, will be able to avoid the injured list. “We’re ready to sit here and wait a few more days to see how he goes about it, even if it’s a pinch-hit appearance,” Melvin said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if this happens within these 10 days.”

Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth got a rare game, on his bobblehead night, no less. “It’s Bobblehead Day, which gives him a little more time to sign, maybe, before the game, interact with the fans a little bit more,” Melvin joked. The manager said that a vacation had been planned for some time. “My bad,” he said. DH Luke Voight also took night rest with hamstring problem. “It’s not ideal to exclude some people, but there we are,” Melvin said.
