Daily Friar 5.30.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

What a crazy game we had on our hands last night Padre fans! Eric Stults gave the best pitching performance all year outdoing what Edinson Volquez did the night before. He set a career high for himself with 12 strikeouts, which is also the highest for a Padres starting pitcher this season. Not to throw anyone under the bus but for comparison sake, Clayton Richard has 16 strikeouts all season. So Stults was fantastic going eight innings strong, but Joe Saunders continued his dominance of Padres bats as well. He lasted seven innings only allowing one run along with Stults. We entered the ninth inning tied 1-1 and Bud Black decided to put in Huston Street. Now I don’t know what Buddy has been watching, but it is clear to most of us that Street cannot pitch in a non-save situation. Such was the case last night as he gave up a go ahead homerun to Jason Bay. At the time we all hung our head and simply asked, “why?” Then the bottom of the ninth came and the Padres tied it up to set up the dramatic walk off win in the bottom of the tenth. For all the work that Stults did he gets the no decision as Luke Gregerson gets the win for the Padres. All this and more is recapped below as well.

Venable sends Padres to walk-off win in 10th –

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The Padres (24-28), seeking a third consecutive victory, have won eight of 11 against the Mariners. They’ll try to make it three of four in this split-venue series with Andrew Cashner (4-2, 3.38) on the mound.”

Huston Street gave up seventh home run of the year – NBC Sports

“Street has allowed just 17 hits in 20 1/3 innings, but 40 percent of them have been homers.”

Trapped in the minors: Dean Anna – Hardball Times

“In that way, Anna is a lot like Mark DeRosa, another ultra-versatile player who put up high on-base percentages but didn’t get a real major league opportunity until his mid-20s. Like DeRosa, Anna could end up with a long career in the big leagues, assuming someone gives him a chance.”

An interview with Kiley McDaniel – MadFriars

“Kiley McDaniel is’s National Baseball Expert, replacing Frankie Piliere this past off-season. Before, Kiley worked under ESPN’s Keith Law as well as in the baseball operations department for the Orioles, Pirates, and Yankees. As a journalist he has written for ESPN, Baseball Prospectus and FanGraphs.”

Will Venable, Sculpin and Me – Avenging Jack Murphy at Padres Public

“I don’t cheer against Will Venable, ever. But I know who he is as a baseball player and this helps to properly temper my expectations.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-29-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The T-Pads and the San Diego Padres experienced very similar nights. Both teams enjoyed a walk-off 3-2 victory. The T-Pads’ walk-off came courtesy of a Jonathan Galvez home run. Donn Roach tossed a quality start for the Missions as San Antonio won 5-3. Despite 3 doubles from Yeison Asencio, the Storm were unable to win as they lost their 5th in a row. Zach Eflin enjoyed a career night as the TinCaps blew out the Lugnuts 7-1.”
