Daily Friar 4.16.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres were finally able to get a win last night after dropping five in a row since their win on Opening Day at Petco last Tuesday. It has been a season so far where either the pitching doesn’t pick up the offense, or the offense doesn’t pick up the pitching. Rarely have we had a game where the two come together and actually play as one. Last night was a different story as the pitching helped out the offense so to speak. Eric Stults had a great outing only allowing three hits through six innings. His only major flaw was that he gave up nine hits in those six innings as well. He also helped out his own cause at the plate by launching a three-run home run to center field. The Padres then were able to tack on some more runs later in route to the win. Now let’s hope they can go back on the field tonight and do the same thing and not lose another series. These are important division games to win and could get us on the right track if we do. Some help is on the way though as it appears that Chase Headley could be back as early as tomorrow, so I would look for him during the San Francisco series. I have a few articles for today, so I hope you enjoy them.
