Daily Friar 5.25.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Every now and then the Padres can surprise everyone. After getting swept by the Cardinals, they are now in New York taking on the Mets. The rain came in and the Padres decided that when it rains, it pours. After the rain delay the hits just started coming. It was almost as if they were baptised by the hitting gods and decided to hit when it mattered. They did a great job racking up 11 runs on 18 hits. The only thing I am worried about now is will they be able to do anything today? That remains to be seen. Here are your links for today:
