Daily Friar 4.30.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

So many missed opportunities plagued the Padres last night. I kept sitting there watching the game thinking that every inning was the inning to get back into the game and pull away for the win, but it never happened. Little mistakes were everywhere, like in the first inning when Carlos Quentin struck out on a pass ball and Everth Cabrera came in to score. That is all well and good, but why didn’t Quentin run down to first? Then later in the game with the bases loaded and one out, Yonder Alonso struck out on a check swing. Then Jedd Gyorko came up and couldn’t do anything. It was a sad game to watch all the missed opportunities go by the way side. Collectively the team went 1-10 with runners in scoring position, which you don’t need me to tell you won’t win you games. The game ended 5-3, but it should have ended 10-5 at least with the Padres winning and celebrating a five game winning streak. The thorn in the Padres side last night was Cody Ransom. Yes that Cody Ransom. He was released by the Padres earlier this month and picked up by the Cubs. Last night every time he was up to bat he put the ball in play and was driving in runs. Explain that to me.

Padres’ win streak halted in Chicago –

“It would prove to be just one of a handful of missed opportunities in a 5-3 series-opening loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field that snapped the Padres’ longest winning streak of the season at four games.”

Volquez looks for second win in Chicago – Union Tribune

“Volquez has a 4-0 career record against the Cubs with a 2.21 ERA in six starts. He is 2-0 in three previous starts at Wrigley Field with a 2.70 ERA in three starts.”

James Darnell to begin rehab assignment – NBC Sports

“Darnell has been out all season with a strained left oblique. Once ready, he is likely to be assigned to Tucson.”

An interview with Stephen Carmon – MadFriars

“In 2012 with the Eugene Emeralds he hit a very respectable .275/.383/.377 and according to Padres’ Vice-President of Development Randy Smith, was one of the best defensive shortstops in the Northwest League.”

Making a pitch – Padres Public

“However, had he not surrendered the single to Ransom that gave Chicago back the lead, you know what his start would have been? A Quality Start.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-29-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“In his second start with Tucson, Eddie Bonine delivered a quality start that was nullified by the lack of offensive output from the T-Pads’ lineup. Matt Andriese was able to collect 8 strikeouts tonight but allowed 5 runs in 5 innings. Fortunately, the Missions’ lineup was able to back him up as the San Antonio won 8-7. Alberth Martinez’s first home run of the year was not enough for the TinCaps as they fell 6-2 against the LumberKings. Lake Elsinore had the day off.”

Five Good Things from the Giants series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“Oh what a joyous series that was. The Padres showed some serious resolve against the defending champions in San Diego, sweeping the Giants in three very exciting games.”
