The 2020 San Diego Padres season was the 52nd season of the San Diego Padres franchise, the 52nd in the National League and the Padres' 17th Season at Petco Park. The Padres were managed by Jayce Tingler, in his first season as the Padres Manager, and played their home games at Petco Park as members of the Major League Baseball's National League West Division.

On March 12, 2020, MLB announced that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks in addition to the remainder of spring training being cancelled.[1] Four days later, it was announced that the start of the season would be pushed back indefinitely due to the recommendation made by the CDC to restrict events of more than 50 people for eight weeks.[2]

On June 23, commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players reported to training camps on July 1 in order to resume spring training and prepare for a July 24 Opening Day.[3]

The Padres became the first team in MLB history to hit a grand slam in four consecutive games, doing so in each of their four games against the Texas Rangers between August 17 and 20.[4]

On September 13, the Padres won their 31st game of the season, ensuring that they would finish with a winning record for the first time since 2010.[5] On September 20, the Padres beat the Seattle Mariners 4–1 to clinch their first postseason appearance since 2006.[6] They defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2020 National League Wild Card Series. The Padres won their first postseason series since the 1998 NLCS. Game 2 of their NL Wild Card Series was also the first home postseason win since Petco Park opened and since Game 4 of the aforementioned 1998 NLCS. The Padres winning Game 3 of the NL Wild Card Series also clinched their first postseason series at home since Game 5 of the 1984 NLCS (also a winner-take-all game). The Padres were defeated by their NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2020 National League Division Series at Globe Life Field.

Previous season

The Padres finished the 2019 Season 70–92 in fifth place in the West Division. The Padres extended its 10-year streak of a losing record and a 15-year nonplayoff streak.

Wild Card Series

Game 1

The Padres started young right hander Chris Paddack against Cardinals lefty Kwang Hyun Kim. The Cardinals got to Paddack early, when Paul Goldschmidt hit a 2-run home run, Yadier Molina singled in Dylan Carlson and Matt Carpenter hit a sacrifice fly to make it 4-0 Cardinals. The Padres responded with an Eric Hosmer sacrifice fly in the 1st & an Austin Nola sacrifice fly in the 2nd. However, the Cardinals would get those runs back as Paul DeJong singled in Carlson & Carpenter singled in Molina to make it 6–2. Padres responded again with a Tommy Pham RBI single. In the 6th inning, Nola made it 6–4 with a sacrifice fly that ended in a double play as Jake Cronenworth was tagged out at 3rd. Dexter Fowler capped the scoring with an RBI single in the 9th to make it 7–4. Kim only lasted ​3 23 and Paddack lasted ​2 13.

Game 2

The Padres gave the ball to veteran right handed Zach Davies, while the Cardinals gave the ball to veteran Adam Wainwright. The Cardinals got to Davies early with a Molina RBI single in the 1st inning. In the 2nd, Harrison Bader singled in Carpenter and Kolten Wong hit a 2-run home run. Davies would only go 2 innings, giving up 4 runs. Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright did not fare well either, as he loaded the bases in the 4th inning with nobody out, and Wil Myers would ground into a force play to get the Padres on the board. After a Nola walk, Wainwright was pulled after ​3 13. Austin Gomber relieved him and out of the jam, but not before allowing another run to cross the plate. In the 6th inning, the Cardinals struck with a Fowler RBI double and a Wong sacrifice fly. The Padres would tie the game in the bottom half of the 6th inning on back 2 back home runs from Fernando Tatís Jr. & Manny Machado. The Padres took their first lead of the series in the bottom of the 7th when Myers homered and Tatis hit his 2nd home run of the night. Back 2 back sacrifice flies got the Cardinals within a run but the Padres put away the game when Myers hit his 2nd home run of the night. Goldschmidt though, would add another home run before Padres closer Trevor Rosenthal shut the door and sent the series to a winner take all Game 3.

Game 3

The Cardinals started ace Jack Flaherty, while the Padres went with a bullpen game. The game remained scoreless until the 5th inning, when Hosmer doubled in Tatis to get the Padres on the board first. The Padres added two more runs in the 7th inning on a fielders choice & a bases loaded walk. Cronenworth would cap off the scoring with a solo home run in the 8th inning. The Padres bullpen held the Cardinals to just 4 hits & Padres closer Trevor Rosenthal worked a 1-2-3 9th inning to send the Padres to the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
