Since joining the Padres’ rotation in mid-August, Richard has made seven starts, and he’s allowed only eight earned runs. Over the past 30 days, no pitcher owns a higher ground-ball rate than Richard’s 64 percent mark.
Marquez was lights-out in his first career Major League start. He limited the Dodgers to one run on four hits over five innings, with one walk and three strikeouts. He had mixed results as a reliever, with three runs given up in 5 1/3 innings.
