Daily Friar 4.2.14 

Seth Smith: stay hot, my friend! His past success against pitcher Zack Greinke continued yesterday as he went 2-for-3 at the plate with his second home-run in as many games.   Maybe he really is the “final piece” afterall. Unfortunately, his performance alone wasn’t enough to pull-out a win as the Dodgers held on for a 3-2 victory despite late rallies by the Padres in the 8th and 9th innings.


Taking the mound tonight for the Padres is tall right-hander Tyson Ross. He looks to lead the Padres to a series victory against Los Angeles and veteran righty Dan Haren. Make sure to tune-in to Fox Sports San Diego or The MIghty 1090 at 7:10 PM PT to catch the action. And remember…#BeatLA .


This Date in Baseball History: April 2, 1995

“The longest strike in major league history comes to an end. Having the first 23 days of this major league season canceled and 252 games of the last season lost, the owners accept the players’ March 31st unconditional offer to return to work. The players’ decision to return to work is made after a US District Court issued an injunction restoring terms and conditions of the expired agreement. Teams will play 144-game schedules. The strike had begun on August 121994.” –
