Daily Friar 5.21.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres can be such a surprise sometimes. In a game that came down to 13 innings you had to begin to wonder if the Padres would be able to ever score another run. After being blown out on Friday and winning on Saturday, Sunday’s rubber match had to come down to 4 extra innings in order to find a series winner. And wouldn’t you know it, the Padres prevailed! This is quite the accomplishment on a couple fronts. One, the Padres won a series. And the second, the Padres are winning against the American League. And most importantly here: WE ARE NO LONGER IN LAST PLACE! They hit the road now for a long road trip. Let’s hope they can pull out a winning record there. Here are your Padres links for today:

Gaslamp Ball has some thoughts on the game
“It took 13 innings and heroics by tomorrow’s starter, Clayton Richard, but the Padres finally defeated the Angels and declared themselves Kings of Southern Southern California today, but more importantly for the pride of all involved, they moved into 4th place in the NL West, moving ahead of the hated Rockies of Colorado.”
