Daily Friar 6.18.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Oh boy my Padres sure have the flair for the dramatic of late when it comes to wins. Whether it be late inning home runs or extra inning victories, they are just finding ways to get it done. The key thing at the end of the day is that they are winning games and are doing so in style. Last night the Padres rallied late to tie the game up 3-3, which brought them all the way to the thirteenth inning (I’ll talk about the twelfth in a moment). The thing is though, the game should not have gone that far. The team struggled last night with runners in scoring position. Yes they won, but to consistently win means they need to get those numbers to be better. As a team, the Padres were 4-22 with RISP. That is 18 missed opportunities to score a run that resulted in 17 men being left on base. The game really should have been at least a 10-3 final, but hey we won and I’ll take that. The win would not have been possible without Will Venable’s game saving catch in the bottom of the twelfth. If you haven’t seen it yet head on over to the Friarhood Facebook page, or and take a look. It was incredible and will go down as the defensive play of the year so far for the Padres. Lastly, we can’t forget about Andrew Cashner laying down the best bunt ever to score Alexi Amarista and ultimately win the game. Seven in a row for the Padres as they look to keep it rolling tonight.

Pitcher’s bunt in 13th gives Black 500th win –

“It wasn’t easy, but Black got his milestone and the Padres got their season-best seventh consecutive win with a 5-3 victory in 13 innings Monday at AT&T Park, as San Diego pushed past the defending World Series champions in the National League West standings.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Cashner (5-3, 3.52) faced the Giants in his first two starts of the season, going 1-1 while giving up three runs in 10 innings.”

Getting to know Nick Vincent – Padres 360

“After just one season at Cal State Long Beach, Nick was drafted in the 18th round (the 555th player taken in the 2008 draft) by his hometown team the San Diego Padres.  He was signed and reported to A- Eugene and actually ended the season pitching 1 game for AAA Portland.”

Who are these San Diego Padres? – The Outside Corner

“San Diego could arguably get even better once some of their injured players return. An increasingly productive lineup and a strong bullpen have allowed the Padres to compete with their NL West rivals.”

1998 Padres retro night in review – Gaslamp Ball

“Ted Leitner introduced each one to a smattering of applause. These guys deserved better from us. Maybe it’s just been too long and no one remembers them anymore. I hope that’s not the case.”

The rare all-star – Padres Public

“If Cabrera makes the All-Star team, that would be news for another reason.  He would be the first Padre shortstop to make the team in over 20 years.”

Tuscon Padres week #10 – Mylo Erickson of The Friarhood

“The Tucson Padres finished off its 10th week of play going 2-5, taking one game from each series so far. The team currently still sits tied for second place in the division with the Las Vegas 51s. Both teams are four games back of the leading Sacramento River Cats.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-17-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Eugene endured another tough loss as their offense was shutdown in their 12-0 defeat. In a shootout, the Missions prevailed due to the hot bat of Jake Blackwood and a couple of extra base hits from Cory Spangenberg. Anthony Bass combined with 3 relievers to shut down the Aces as the T-Pads won 5-1. Both Lake Elsinore and Fort Wayne are enjoying their All Star Breaks.”
