Daily Friar 5.31.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Like Sampson before him, Andrew Cashner weakened as he was sheared and fell to the mighty King Felix. Realistically though Cashner allowing four runs in six innings isn’t all that bad. The worst part of it was that he did it with three home runs, and he had to face Felix Hernandez. Honestly I didn’t expect this one to be a win for the Padres mainly for the fact that they were facing Hernandez. Granted he hasn’t pitched extremely well the past couple of outings, but with the Padres offense he was able to shut them down. Hernandez lasted eight innings, much like Aaron Harang did two days prior and only allowed three hits. The Padres threatened a couple of times but he was able to work out of the jams. Along with Cashner, Tim Stauffer pitched two innings and gave up two home runs of his own that accounted for three more runs. Nick Vincent was given the ninth inning and pitched a scoreless frame. So all told the Mariners hit five home runs, two of which came off the bat of Nick Franklin and those two were his first two of his career. Now the Padres welcome in the Toronto Blue Jays for the weekend series. Hopefully they can pull off a series win.

Padres fall to Felix, Mariners in finale –

“Hernandez was dominant and was aided by five Mariners’ home runs as Seattle cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Padres on Thursday in front of 18,809 fans at Petco Park and earned a split of a four-game Interleague series.”

A preview of the weekend series – Union Tribune

“The Padres and Blue Jays will be meeting for the third time in interleague play. The first two series (most recently in 2010) were also played in San Diego with Toronto winning two of the three games each time.”

A preview of tonight’s game – ESPN

“The San Diego Padres haven’t had much help from the rotation during their recent rough stretch, though Jason Marquis has been their most consistent starter the past month.”

An interview with Cody Hebner – MadFriars

“Cody Hebner, 22, was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 draft by the Padres out of Green River Community College in Washington state.”

May 31st maybe the greatest date in Padres history – Gaslamp Ball

“Anyway, they’ve won 71.43% of those 42 games. It’s the only date where the team has won 30 games.”

Vedder Cup runneth over – Padres Public

“The Vedder Cup was and always will be a silly joke that amuses me. That it amuses some of you is amazing. That it amuses FSSD is beyond the wildest of wild dreams I ever could have had.”

Did Nick Hundley manage to get into his own head? – Glen Miller of The Friarhood

“I got the feeling from Hundley’s later comments that he was only interested in doing his job. Well he hasn’t done that job very well in the last month and I have to wonder if Hundley let the Grandal situation get into his head. Or rather, did Hundley get into his own head?”

Tuscon Padres week #7 – Mylo Erickson of The Friarhood

“Tucson was 2-5 on the week after finishing off a four game road trip against the Omaha Storm Chasers and then coming back home to lose the first three games of a four game series against the Sacramento River Cats.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-30-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“While there wasn’t a particular player who totally stood out in the TinCaps’ 7-4 victory, almost every member of the lineup provided production for Fort Wayne. Lake Elsinore lost their 6th in a row despite collecting 11 hits. Reliever Matt Branham provided critical relief for the Storm as starter Frank Garces lasted less than 1 inning. Tucson was blown out by the Grizzlies despite a perfect night at the plate from Logan Forsythe.”
