Daily Friar 3.23.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres were back in action last night under the Peoria lights against the Mariners. Tyson Ross had another outstanding game as he looks to take over the number five spot in the rotation. Coming into last night’s game he was riding an 11 1/3 scoreless inning streak. That streak came to end in the fifth inning via a Kelly Shoppach home run. It proved to be the only run that Ross would give up as he was pulled after 4 2/3 innings of work. The best stat for me though is that in those innings he struck out six. The offense was nonexistent last night against a very tough Felix Hernandez, thus the reason the Padres lost. There was no Daily Friar yesterday as some of you may have noticed, so there is a lot to get to today in regards to news from yesterday and today.
