Daily Friar 6.12.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I knew going into last night’s game that things were going to be tough for the offense. Tim Hudson was pitching for the Braves and he has never lost to the Padres. Ever. Andrew Cashner was looking to change that and make sure that the Padres would stand a fighting chance against the 15-year veteran. Cashner did just that as he lasted 8 complete innings allowing only two runs on six hits during that stretch. He was so on last night that he didn’t even give up an extra base hit. Hudson on the other hand did pretty well also, but he gave up three runs compared to Cahsner’s two. All three runs scored for the Padres happened with two outs in their respective innings with Headley, Quentin and Hundley grabbing the RBIs. But as you can tell pitching was the story of the game as both starters went deep before turning things over to their bullpens who were lights out. For the Padres, Joe Thatcher came in to face two men, which he struck out both, before turning it over to Luke Gregerson who struck out Dan Uggla to finish the game. Both teams are at it again today as Edinson Volquez looks to lead the Padres to a sweep of the Braves.

Padres promote Jaff Decker to bolster outfield – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“With the report of Cameron Maybin hitting the 15-Day DL, the Padres needed to get more depth in their outfield.

Duck calling at Petco? – Gaslamp Ball

“Finally around the 5th inning we think we figured this mystery out. After Cashner would strike out an opposing batter a select group of fans would start duck calling.”

“This draft shows a nice mix of upside talent that needs developing, strong college picks that could be average major leaguers and a few gambles that could pay off big.”
