Jackson (5-6) was the winning pitcher in Friday's 7-2 win over the Giants, allowing two runs on four hits while walking five and striking out five over six innings.

EDGE Analysis

Edwin "Suitcase" Jackson and the Padres maintained a lead for the entirety of the contest, and while the 33-year-old gave the Giants some life with a two-run fifth, the Padres offense picked up Jackson by quickly adding four runs in the bottom of the same inning to give the journeyman right-hander his second win in his last seven starts, and his second win against San Francisco since being acquired by the Padres in July.

Jackson went six innings Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk with four strikeouts, but took a no-decision in a 3-2 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson followed up his 11-strikeout performance against Boston with another quality start, keeping Colorado's potent offense in check. He's been up and down since joining San Diego's rotation in mid-July, posting a 5.21 ERA in 10 starts while allowing opponents to bat .271/.345/.450 against him. The depleted Padres don't have better alternatives, however, and will keep running the 33-year-old out there as long as he's healthy. Jackson will try to neutralize the Rockies again on Saturday at Coors Field.

Jackson (4-5) threw seven shutout innings with 11 strikeouts and allowed just four hits and two walks in Monday's win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Since throwing seven shutout innings four starts ago against the Pirates, Jackson had been awful, having allowed 18 runs and four homers over just 11.1 innings. He rebounded in fantastic fashion, recording his first double-digit strikeout start of the season and holding down an American League playoff contender for seven innings. Jackson still owns a brutal 5.55 ERA and a 43:31 K:BB in 61.2 innings, but this marks a bright spot in an otherwise dark season.

Jackson (3-5) was roughed up again Tuesday, lasting just 2.2 innings while surrendering five runs on seven hits and three walks with no strikeouts. He took his third consecutive loss.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday makes it three straight brutal starts for Jackson, who has allowed a whopping 18 earned runs in his last 11.2 innings pitched. The rough stretch has raised Jackson's ERA to 6.26 on the season and his WHIP to 1.68. On the bright side, Jackson was able to keep the ball in the yard Tuesday after serving up three long balls in his last start against the Cubs. With just a 32:29 K:BB ratio and the Padres in last place in the NL West, one wonders if the Padres won't give a young prospect a shot at starting in Jackson's place moving forward.

Jackson (3-4) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks with two strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has lost three straight in brutal fashion after a promising start to his time in San Diego's rotation. He has now allowed 18 runs in just 14 innings his past three times out, with an ugly 12:10 K:BB in that span. The Cubs touched him up for three home runs Monday night, and that was his main problem his last time in the rotation in 2014 with the Cubs. That season, he surrendered 18 home runs in 140.2 innings (1.2 HR/9), a big factor in his awful 6.33 ERA.

Jackson (3-3) was crushed for eight runs on nine hits over four innings Tuesday against the Rays. He walked three and struck out three in the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off his two best starts of the season, Jackson served up his worst performance of 2016 on Tuesday in Tampa. Since signing with the Padres on June 16, the 14-year veteran has made six starts. Four of those outings have been quality starts in which Jackson went 3-0 with a 2.31 ERA. The other two were ugly losses in which he posted a 14.00 ERA and 2.67 WHIP. The 32-year-old has proven he can be a valuable fantasy arm, but his inconsistency makes him a hard play regardless of the matchup.

Jackson (3-2) threw seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits while striking out seven and walking three in a 4-0 victory over the Pirates on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander faced just three batters above the minimum and with anyone on base, he either induced a ground out or recorded a strikeout. This was Jackson's fourth quality start in five outings with the Padres. He is now 3-2 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 43.0 innings this season. His next scheduled start is Monday against Tampa Bay.

Jackson (2-2) allowed three runs on eight hits over eight innings, struck out five and walked none in a 12-3 victory over the Brewers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

San Diego was able to give Jackson a little bit of leeway because they had an 11-run lead, so just over 100 pitches, the Padres allowed Jackson to finish the eighth. He retired 21 of the first 26 batters he faced. Jackson is 2-1 with a 4.62 ERA over four starts since coming over from Miami in a trade. His next start will be Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Jackson allowed six runs on 10 hits and two walks over five innings Friday night to get the loss against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has had trouble missing bats in all three Padres starts. His three strikeouts Friday gave him eight in 17.1 innings in his three starts. When that many balls are in play, he's subject to the whims of positioning and the amount of hard contact allowed. The good news is that he's allowed just one homer in those three starts.

Jackson didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, giving up two earned runs on six hits and three walks over six innings. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty worked at least six innings for the second time in as many starts, and gave up just two earned runs once again. Jackson stayed away from the long ball altogether against a dangers Nationals lineup and was efficient, throwing only 87 pitches. He'll look to continue his solid Padres tenure when he takes on the Reds next Friday.
