In an interview ahead of the away game against the San Francisco Giants held at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California on the 26th (Korean time), Melvin said about the current team situation, saying, “We are playing our best baseball right now.”

San Diego has a record of 77 wins and 79 losses ahead of today’s game. Wild card tied for 3rd place, 5 games behind the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks.

With six games remaining, the chances of advancing to the postseason are virtually slim. The ‘elimination number’ that confirms elimination is 2. If they lose two games or if Arizona or the Cubs win just two games, they will be eliminated.

Nevertheless, the reason they are showing such confidence is because the recent trend is good. They are showing their best performance this season with 9 wins and 1 loss in the last 10 games.

Melvin said, “We are still at a disadvantage, but we are doing really well recently. We are not focused on the current ranking, but on winning the game at hand. “I plan to fight for as long as possible,” he continued.

Today’s starter, Blake Snell, is contributing a lot to the team’s upward trend. He is showing good form with 14 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 2.33. If the current trend continues, it is possible to win the Cy Young Award.

Melvin said, “When you look at all the records, including innings pitched, strikeouts, and earned run average, it is overwhelming. In particular, it has been maintaining good form recently. He praised Snell’s pitching, saying, “It’s hard to see this kind of performance maintained until the end of the season.”

He then gave encouragement to Snell by saying, “I think he is the most dominant pitcher right now.”

On this day, San Diego had Xander Bogaerts (shortstop), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right fielder), Juan Soto (left fielder), Manny Machado (designated hitter), Ha-seong Kim (3rd baseman), Ji-man Choi (1st baseman), Matthew Batten (2nd baseman), Trent Grisham (center fielder), and Brett Sullivan. (Catcher)’s lineup was announced.

Backup catcher Sullivan played in place of Campusano. “Campusano hurt his ankle yesterday,” Melvin said of Campusano, who suffered an injury while sliding the day before.

“I was in pain when I woke up this morning,” Melvin said. First, I will treat it and check the condition. He explained the situation, saying, “I’m hoping to be able to play tomorrow because I’ll be facing a left-handed starting pitcher tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.” If Campusano is unable to play on this day and a catcher needs to be replaced, Matthew Batten will temporarily take over as catcher.
