Wil Myers steals three bases in one inning as Padres sweep Phillies

Unless he morphs into Mike Trout over the next several weeks, Wil Myers will finish well short of his stated goals for 2017. The Padres first baseman has had a frustrating season, struggling to make contact often enough. The burdens of a franchise-record extension and front-man status on a young roster have weighed on the mind of a 26-year-old. Forty home runs and 40 steals – milestones Myers had hoped to eclipse – appear safely out of reach.
