Daily Friar 10.2.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Last night’s game was interesting to say the least. Clayton Richard looked pretty decent on the mound, minus the home runs he gave up. But they are playing in Milwaukee and any fly ball in that place will go out it seems. This includes the deep fly ball that Clayton Richard sent over the right field wall for his first career home run. It was bitter sweet in the end as his father sat in the stands to watch the ball sail over the wall, but in the end he had to watch his son take the loss. The good news is that Ryan Braun was kept quiet in the RBI department, which keeps him one back of Chase Headley. Two more games remain as this race comes down to the wire. Here are your Padres links for today:

Richard has trouble containing Crew in defeat –
“Richard fell short in his second bid for a milestone victory, as he allowed three home runs at Miller Park on Monday as the Brewers topped the Padres, 5-3, before a crowd of 30,398.”

NCT goes behind Chase Headley’s numbers
“With Sunday’s home run, his 31st of the year, Headley upped his RBI total for September to 30 after he drove in 31 runs in August —- making the Padres’ switch-hitting third baseman just the second major leaguer in the last 13 years to drive in 30 or more runs in back-to-back months.”

Headley’s RBI totals almost unprecedented – CBS Sports
“His September numbers are even better. Headley hit .320 for September with nine homers and 30 RBI plus a .412 on-base percentage and a .638 slugging percentage. He played 26 games in September, but under baseball’s statistical guidelines, games played in October count as September.”

Padres shut down Casey Kelly – NBC Sports
“He is also expected to skip the Arizona Fall League. The 22-year-old right-hander is healthy, but the Padres don’t want to push him any further.”

2012 MadFriars Cal League Player of the Year
“While many of the high profile prospects struggled, lower draft picks such as Tommy Medica and Casey McElroy had breakout seasons.”
