Christian Friedrich 4 8 4.84 4.29 16.8% 9.3% .269 .308 9 16 87.1 1.0
Chris Archer 6 16 4.39 3.91 27.6% 8.6% .241 .306 23 25 149.2 2.2

Chris Archer's run of solid starts ended his last time out as he allowed five runs on seven hits over six innings pitched against the Yankees. He also surrendered another home run during that game, however, on a positive note, he did strikeout nine batters and walked none. It was just one of those games where every ball seemed to find a hole against him.

Christian Friedrich Scouting Report:

Since joining the Padres rotation fulltime in May, Friedrich has provided San Diego with at least one good start a month. Everything else has been awful or at least mediocre. His last time out was one of the mediocre ones as he allowed four runs on nine hits while he walked one and struck out two over six innings pitched en route to his eighth loss of the season, he has not won since June 23rd (eight starts).
