The right fielder Profar recorded his first 3-hit game in Major League Baseball on Wednesday and was a home run shy of the cycle.

Profar started the first with a single and moved to second as Jake Cronenworth was hit by a pitch. Bumgarner then struck out Luke Voit and Jorge Alfaro. Ha-Seong Kim then followed with a grounder to third that got away from Josh Rojas, but ultimately was ruled a hit to load the bases.

Bumgarner gave up six runs with four earned on nine hits and a hit batter with five strikeouts in four innings. Mike Clevinger made his first start and second appearance this month since coming off of the COVID-19 injured list. He scored one run on four hits, two walks, and three strikeouts in four innings. He threw 29 pitches in the first 20 minutes of the first innings and loaded the bases with one out. Meanwhile, Adrian Morejon gave up an unearned run in 1 1/3 innings.

Jordan Luplow of the Diamondbacks threw Alfaro out at third to end the sixth inning, almost cut down Azocar in the 11th. Unfortunately, despite his strong throw, it arrived just too late.

“[Alfaro] tends to shoot the ball the other way a little bit,โ€ he said.

Alfaro eventually gave the Padres a win, with a walk-off single in the 10th inning on Tuesday night, and hit a solo homer in the sixth. Azocar, on the other hand, fell a home run short of the cycle in his first career three-hit game.

While Profar had four straight singles, he was then hit on the back of his left thigh by a pitch thrown by Caleb Smith in the seventh. This prompted him to fling his bat angrily, making it skid down the dirt, nearly all the way to the first base.

All-Star slugger Manny Machado missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle.

Melvin Returns

Bob Melvin was back on the top step of the dugout for the first time after 12 games, with the Padres welcoming him back.

Just like Clevinger, Melvin returned after 11 games being under the COVID-19 protocols.

Melvin said he was happy to get back out there again and have the team record a satisfying victory, although it was somewhat sloppy.

โ€œIโ€™m glad we won, but itโ€™s one thing to watch it on TV, miss the excitement, the fans. and everything goes on here. To be able to get in the dugout and kind of see all that again and win, it was great,โ€ he said.
