Daily Friar 6.1.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Well wasn’t that just fun last night/this morning? The Padres and Blue Jays went the distance as it took 17 innings to complete the game. The good news is that the Padres were able to take the win with a walk off single from Jesus Guzman. For twelve innings prior to it though the game was tied. The Blue Jays started off strong giving themselves a 3-0 lead before going into the fifth inning when Jedd Gyokro came to the plate with two runners on. He hit a double that plated them both, but then an errant throw from the catcher Arencibia allowed Gyorko to come in to score to tie the game. From there it was all pitching as both teams exhausted their bullpen and had to get creative towards the end. Bud Black said in his press conference that he thought of using Alexi Amarista, but he turned to today’s projected starter Clayton Richard to pitch a couple innings and come away with the win. Because Richard pitched last night he will not be going today, instead we will see a minor league call up. And if you are a good Friarhood follower then you know who it is already, otherwise you can take a look below to see who it is. Lastly, poor Kelly Crull getting in the middle of the of the ice water shower yet again.

Guzman walks off to lift Padres in 17th –

“When it mattered most, Gyorko’s legs became his biggest ally as he scored from second base with the winning run in the Padres’ 4-3 win over the Blue Jays in 17 innings in front of an enthusiastic remainder of the crowd of 24,219 at Petco Park.”

Padres recall Robbie Erlin – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

Padres honor the Negro Leagues – Union Tribune

“Applaud Dave Winfield, the luncheon host, and the Padres for continuing to honor the Negro Leagues and keep history alive. They don’t have to. But they do, year after year.”

San Diego Padres are hanging on during tough stretch – Rant Sports

“Now as they have cooled down quite a bit they are hanging on only a few games out hoping not to fall too far behind before they hit another hot stretch.”

San Diego Padres selecting 13th overall in MLB draft – Eugene Daily News

“This will have a great local impact because the selectee is likely to be brought down to A baseball and play his first days under the Eugene Emeralds’ organization.”

A tale of revenge from Tony Gwynn – Gaslamp Ball

“I love this story and that Gwynn is still tells it passionately. Only Tony Gwynn would have enough talent, artistry and precision with a bat that he’d try to exact his own revenge on a pitcher.”

Five good things from the Vedder Cup series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“Though they split the series, Vedder Cup rules say in the event of a tie, the reigning champ retains the Cup, which the Padres won five games to one in 2012.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-31-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“All 3 starting pitchers were incredible; they combined to throw 16.1 innings with just two runs allowed. The bats did pretty well themselves as the T-Pads scored 10 and the Missions scored 7. The Storm only scored 3, but their pitching was so great that all they needed was 1. The TinCap game was postponed to tomorrow due to a rain delay.”
