Daily Friar 4.21.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

It’s very hard to win a game when you don’t score a single run. Andrew Cashner had to make a spot start in the place of Clayton Richard last night who was suffering from the flu. Cashner had a great outing all things considered with his only blemish being a two run home run by Pablo Sandoval. The home run was only one of two hits given up by Cashner in his four innings of work. Then the bullpen came in and shut down the Giants for the rest of the game minus one hit given up by Brad Brach. All in all the Padres actually out hit the Giants 5-3, but just because you have more hits doesn’t mean you win the game. Tim Lincecum has had a rough past couple of years since his Cy Young days, but he seemed to have reverted back to form last night. Now once again the Padres are looking to salvage another series. Maybe we should go back and play the Dodgers all year since it’s the only team that we can beat. A 5-12 record is very hard to swallow to start the season.

Cashner’s effort foiled by Padres’ cold bats – Padres.com

“Cashner didn’t make many mistakes, and even the two-run home run he allowed to Pablo Sandoval was not that bad of a pitch, though the Padres couldn’t muster anything against Tim Lincecum and three Giants relievers in a 2-0 loss before a sold-out crowd of 41,995 at AT&T Park.”

Thad Weber recalled by Padres – NBC Sports

“Weber was called up for Tyson Ross, who went on the disabled list with a left shoulder subluxation.”

Padres signed a minor leaguer – MLBTR

“After being released by the Diamondbacks earlier today, right-handed pitcher Eddie Bonine has hooked on with the Padres, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets.”

Bernie Wilson gives a comprehensive look at the new ownership – Mercury News

“They’ve pledged to turn the Padres into consistent winners while following the O’Malley traits of hard work; first-class treatment of employees, players and fans; commitment to the community; and keeping as low a profile as possible.”

Game preview for this afternoon – Gaslamp Ball

“In the series finale at AT&T Park this afternoon, the Padres will look to their most reliable starter so far this year in hopes of avoiding a sweep. Eric Stults will take the mound in his fourth start of the season.”

Good, Bad and Ugly from yesterday’s game – Steve Adler of The Friarhood

“Andrew Cashner – 4IP, 2H, 2ER, 1BB, 5K, 1HRA.  A spot start for a sick Clayton Richard, Cashner held his own against the World Champions.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-20-13 – Alex Barlett of The Friarhood

“Max Fried struck out 5 over 4 innings as the TinCaps blew out the Lugnuts 17-8. Dane Phillips collected 4 hits and fell a double shy of the cycle. Lake Elsinore dropped their 3rd game in a row to the Rawhide; they’ve been outscored by 4 runs over the 3 losses.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
