Daily Friar 6.16.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

What an exciting night for the Padres and Padres fans. It has been a rough go for the past couple of years as the Padres have been on a losing stretch. There have been shades and glimmers of hope, but nothing ever really came of it. This season they started 2-10, which quickly translated to a 5-15 record. Then things slowly but surely turned around. Here we are on the morning of June 16, 2013 sitting at a .500 record for the first time since April 10, 2011. Jason Marquis started the game and allowed two early runs in the first, then another run in the fourth. Lately though you can’t discount the Padres offense. They have been known to get a little streak going now and then and occasionally put up a crooked number. They did just that in the bottom of the fourth as they put up a five spot on the back of a three run shot by Yasmani Grandal. Kyle Blanks would add another run on a solo home run in the sixth to give the Padres six runs to work with for the rest of the game. Huston Street got the save even though he allowed one run to score. So there you have it, another Padres win and another series win as they look to go over .500 on the season.

Marquis keeps rolling as Padres reach .500 –

“That was never more evident than Saturday, as the Padres rallied from an early three-run deficit for a 6-4 victory over the D-backs before a crowd of 29,756. For one night, at least, the Padres got to savor their 34-34 record — the first time they had been .500 since April 10, 2011, when Jorge Cantu, Eric Patterson and Alberto Gonzalez were in the starting lineup.”

“Richard had gone 6-0 with a 4.06 ERA over his first eight starts versus Arizona prior to surrendering seven runs in 3 2/3 innings during an 8-1 loss May 4. Paul Goldschmidt and Cody Ross are a combined 10 for 19 with four doubles against him.”

Dodgers claim John Baker – MLBTR

“The Dodgers have claimed John Baker off waivers from the Padres, as first tweeted by Peter Gammons of MLB Network.  The catcher was designated for assignment earlier this week to make room for the return of Logan Forsythe from the 60-day disabled list.”

Clayton Richard looks for redemption – Gaslamp Ball

“Richard, originally slated to start last night’s game, was pushed back one day to get some extra rest. In six of his nine starts this year, he’s allowed five or more runs and he’s averaging less than five innings per start.”
