Daily Friar 4.28.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

What a game we had on our hands last night! The Padres did their typical act of giving up a huge early lead to the Giants, but they countered with an atypical fight back into the game. I actually missed the bulk of the Giants’ scoring as I was out to dinner. When I checked my phone I saw that it was 3-0 and scoffed and said here we go again. Then when I got home I turned the game on to see that it was 5-3, right before Chris Denorfia came through to tie the game up and then Everth Cabrera gave the Padres the lead. The Giants did take the lead again only to have the Padres tie the game up yet again, which lead to the Padres first extra innings game of the season. Then came the bottom of the 12th when back to back hits from Alonso and Gyorko allowed Nick Hundley to come to the plate and hit a ground ball to second.  All of us thought that Marco Scutaro was going to field that ball cleanly and send the game to thirteen, but he booted it and the Padre scored the winning run. It was a great game to watch and a fun game at that. I hope that you enjoy reading all about it below:

Alonso’s doubles key in Padres’ walk off victory – Padres.com

“Nick Hundley drove in the game-winning run in the 12th as the Padres twice rallied back from deficits to defeat the San Francisco Giants, 8-7, in the second of a three-game series at Petco Park on Saturday.”

Luke Gregerson has three sliders – Fangraphs

“In fact, he said he has ‘a few different sliders’ when pushed further. Depending on the handedness of the hitter, or where in the zone he’s looking to go, he’ll use any one of his sliders.”

Joe Wieland inching closer to 2013 debut – Rant Sports

“The Nevada native made significant progress on Friday in which he tossed 100 pitches off the mound, something that he has not been able to accomplish up to this point.”

Everth Cabrera almost hit Chris Denorfia two nights ago – Yahoo

“The object: The bat of teammate Everth Cabrera’s after the lead-off hitter had just wildly and authoritatively swung and missed a Tim Lincecum 1-0 fastball, losing his grip in the process.”

T-Pads balanced attack breaks losing streak – MadFriars

“The T-Padres beat the Colorado SkySox 7-3 on Saturday night getting a strong start by right-hander Sean O’Sullivan behind a disciplined offensive performance.”

A preview of tonight’s game – Gaslamp Ball

“The Padres haven’t swept the Giants since 2010. But they have the chance to do so today as they wrap up the series at Petco Park. Jason Marquis takes the mound opposite Ryan Vogelsong in the finale.”

New digital painting from Jeremy Nash – The Friarhood

“This is something I’d been working on sice spring training. It’s Chase Headley during his walk off homer last year against the Pirates.”

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

“Yonder Alonso – 3-5, three doubles, two runs scored, two RBI (12), BB – Now hitting .286/.344/.429 on the year.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-27-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“After getting shutout last night, the T-Pads collected 12 hits en route to their 7-3 victory over the Sky Sox. San Antonio won a tight game in which they scored two 9th inning runs to win 4-3. Despite home runs from Yeison Asencio and Robert Kral, Lake Elsinore was only able to score 3 runs in their loss against the Quakes. Justin Hancock turned in a quality start for Fort Wayne but the bullpen was unable to sustain the lead as the TinCaps fell to the Cougars 5-3.”
