Jurickson Profar has strong day in Padres loss ThursdaySeptember 22, 2022 | 10:48 PM
Padres leadoff hitter Jurickson Profar finished 2-for-5 with a home run and a double in San Diego's 5-4 loss to the Cardinals Thursday.
Writer's Analysis: Profar took Cardinals starter Jake Flaherty deep in the bottom of the first inning, giving the Padres an early lead. It was his 15th homer of the season. He later hit his 34th double of the season off Flaherty, driving in another run. The Padres outfielder has quietly been producing solid mid-round value for much of the season hitting atop one of the league's best lineups.
