Daily Friar 5.29.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I don’t know who was on the mound last night, but I am pretty sure that wasn’t Edinson Volquez. It couldn’t have been right? The guy on the mound last night went 7.2 innings only giving up four hits and striking out five. He did give up three walks also, but only one run came in to score. So clearly that wasn’t Edinson Volquez on the mound. With this win he has evened up his record at 4-4 and the three previous wins were against mediocre teams as well with the exception of one. So maybe Edinson Volquez can pitch, against the bad teams that is. It was nice to see but I am really hoping that he can carry this over into the next game he pitches. The offense helped him out though after staying quiet the night before plating six runs, three of them coming off home runs. Also of note is Carlos Quentin went 2-4 last night, so hopefully that means he is really coming around with his adjustments that he is making. The Mariners and Padres are at it again tonight this time coming back down to San Diego for two games. Let’s get that win again and keep the Vedder Cup where it rightfully belongs!

Gyorko smacks sixth homer of May to back Volquez –

“Back in the lineup on Tuesday, Gyorko continued his torrid month of May, hitting a two-run home run to get the Padres on their way to a 6-1 victory over the Mariners before a crowd of 11,911 at Safeco Field.”

A preview of tonight’s game – ESPN

“San Diego, winner of seven of 10 in this series following Tuesday’s 6-1 victory, opens its five-game homestand with Eric Stults (4-4, 4.22) getting his first look at the Mariners.”

Joe Wieland to throw live batting practice – NBC Sports

“It will be the first time he’s done so since undergoing Tommy John surgery. Wieland is hoping to begin a rehab assignment by late June, with a return to the big league club coming after the All-Star break.”

The Fringe Five – Fangraphs
On Burch Smith:

“In any case, Smith exhibited no difficulty in his return to the minors. Making his first Triple-A appearance (for Padres affiliate Tucson), Smith posted the following line on Tuesday night: 5.0 IP, 5 K, 0 BB, 0 HR, 6 H, 1 R.”

A great piece on Everth Cabrera – Padres Public

“His 2013 season is turning into must-see theater and a rather captivating subject when it comes to development and long-term outlook.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-28-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Diego Goris did it all for the TinCaps as he walked Fort Wayne off 6-5. Lake Elsinore continued their losing ways as starter Matt Jackson allowed 8 runs in 5 innings. Kalian Sams broke a mini-slump by smacking a grand slam in the top of the 1st for the Missions. However, the Missions were quieted for the next 8 innings as they lost 8-4. Burch Smith excelled in his first start since being sent down as the T-Pads won 5-1.”
