Why did Machado yell at Tatis?

San Diego Padres' Manny Machado screams at Fernando Tatis Jr. in dugout after ump dispute. ST. ... Machado shouted and cursed at Tatis, telling him "it's not about you" and "you go play baseball" after Tatis struck out looking in the fifth.

The spiraling San Diego Padres blew an eighth inning lead against the Cardinals on Saturday night in St. Louis to fall 2 ½ games out of the final National League playoff spot (STL 3, SD 2). No less notable is that frustrations led to a dugout conflict between the team's two biggest stars, Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado

Here is video of the confrontation that includes some NSFW language. The conflict stemmed from Tatis' arguing balls and strikes after he struck out looking in the fifth. In an effort to spare Tatis from likely ejection by plate ump Phil Cuzzi, Padres manager Jayce Tingler was himself ejected. That seemed to spark the heated argument between Tatis and Machado, during which both players had to be separated. "It's not [expletive] about you," Machado can be heard yelling at one point

Tensions within the roster are understandable given the Padres' recent struggles and tumble out of playoff position. With Saturday's key loss, San Diego has now lost seven of their last nine and has gone 5-10 in September and 23-32 in the second half. Once in the thick of the NL West race, the Padres effectively have no shot at the division title and have likewise seen their odds of winning the second wild card spot take a sustained hit. In that sense, the heated argument between Machado and Tatis was probably about more than just what happened in the fifth inning on Saturday night. 

Speaking of the fifth inning, the Padres at that juncture still held a 2-0 lead. That lead would last until the eighth, when the Cardinals plated three -- two on another clutch home run off the bat of Tyler O'Neill. The Cardinals have now won seven straight and are a season-best nine games over .500. They lead the Reds by a pair of games in the chase for the second wild card berth, and they lead both the Reds and Padres by three games in the loss column.

Dayton Daily News 18 September, 2021 - 05:00am

The Cincinnati Reds passed the San Diego Padres in the wild-card race Friday but still trail the St. Louis Cardinals by one game with 14 to play.

The Reds (77-71) beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 in the opener of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park, while the Cardinals (77-69) beat the Padres 8-2 in St. Louis.

The Padres (76-71) trail the Cardinals by 1½ games and the Reds by a half game.

The Reds have the best odds (32.0 percent) of winning the wild card, according to FanGraphs.com, with the Cardinals (31.3 percent) and Padres (28.4 percent) trailing them.

The Reds have 14 games remaining. The Cardinals and Padres have 16 games to play.

• Reds: Sept. 18-19, vs. Dodgers (94-54); Sept. 20-22, vs. Pirates; Sept. 23-26, vs. Washington Nationals (60-87); Sept. 28-29, at Chicago White Sox (84-63); Oct. 1-3, at Pirates (55-92).

Padres pregame: Cronenworth still out; Frazier remains in cleanup spot

The San Diego Union-Tribune 17 September, 2021 - 04:46pm

Padres manager Jayce Tingler said he expects Cronenworth to be available off the bench Friday night.

For now they are sticking with their hot hands as Adam Frazier is batting cleanup for a second straight game and Jurickson Profar is leading off for a third straight game after serving as the catalyst to a resurgent offense.

Profar was just 1-for-5 with an RBI on Thursday but got the Padres off on the right foot Wednesday, when he went 2-for-6 with a two-run homer. He’ll play right field as Wil Myers is out of the starting lineup for a third straight game.

Meantime, Frazier is 7-for-10 over his last two games and, as a long-time resident of the NL Central, as familiar with Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas as anyone.

Across 33 plate appearances, Frazier is hitting .375/.394/.625 with four doubles and two triples against Mikolas (0-2, 5.47 ERA).

Mikolas has allowed four homers through his first 26 1/3 innings since returning from the 60-day injured list (forearm). He has not pitched more than five innings in any of his six starts this year.

As for the Padres, they are turning to right-hander Vince Velasquez (3-6, 5.95 ERA) to make the start in place of the injured Blake Snell.

Velasquez was released over the weekend after six years with the Phillies (4.93 ERA). He has allowed three runs on eight hits and five walks in 6 2/3 innings this year against the Cardinals, which includes three runs in 4 1/3 innings in a start in April in St. Louis.

Here is how the Cardinals have fared in their careers against Velasquez:

To make room for Velasquez on the 40-man and active rosters, the Padres optioned right-hander Shaun Anderson to Triple-A El Paso and designated left-hander Nick Ramirez for assignment.

Here is the Cardinals’ lineup:
