The Padres (76-71) came into Saturday's matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals having dropped seven of their last 10 games and 22 of their last 32. Once considered a World Series contender, the Padres are now 1.5 games back of the Cardinals for the final National League Wild Card spot.

The wheels have fallen off in San Diego, and tempers are flaring.
