Daily Friar 6.27.13 

Once again the Padres let a good start get away from them and the bullpen faltered in the end. Robbie Erlin came into this game starting just his second major league game, but he was pitching like a 10-year veteran. He was a little shaky at first giving up two early runs, but once he settled in it was lights out for the Phillies. Unfortunately for him he was pulled from the game in the seventh and the bullpen let the lead get away from them. Kyle Blanks had a costly error that led to one run scoring on the next pitch. This made the game 5-3, which seemed like it would be doable for the Padres to get through and get to the win. Luke Gregerson came in to pitch the 8th inning and was on for the most part, except for one mistake hanging slider to Delmon Young who promptly deposited the ball into the left field seats. This tied the game at five all and that went all the way to the 13th inning when Logan Forsythe had two very costly errors that ultimately won the game for the Phillies. Day off today as the Padres hit the road starting in Miami. Let’s hope they come away with a series win and let’s stay away from the Biogenesis labs.

This Date In Baseball History: June 27, 2002

“As part of a six-player deal, the Indians trade their #1 starter, right-hander Bartolo Colon, to the Expos for first baseman Lee Stevens, three minor league prospects and cash. Those three youngsters are SS Brandon Phillips, southpaw Cliff Lee and flycatcher Grady Sizemore, all of whom will become top-flight major leaguers.” – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

“The Padres, let down by their defense, squandered a fine pitching performance from their rookie starter and a late lead as the Phillies scored twice in the 13th inning for a 7-5 victory before a crowd of 25,610 at Petco Park.”

Everth Cabrera works out at 75 percent – NBC Sports

“It’s not clear what the next step is for the shortstop, but the team remains hopeful that Cabrera can be activated next Tuesday when first eligible.”

An in depth look at Ricky Nolasco – Fangraphs

“Ricky Nolasco, as a starting pitcher, is fine. That’s the best, most accurate label I can give him. The question is how fine; is he more like a 3 who can look like a 2, or is he more like a 4 who can look like a 3?”

An interview with Jace Peterson – MadFriars

“Peterson, who just turned 24, is starting to really heat up in the Cal League and was coming into Wednesday night’s game at .305/.371/.455 and seems certain to join his best friend second baseman Cory Spangenberg in AA San Antonio.”

Alex Cole: San Diego Padre. Sort of. – Gaslamp Ball

“If you don’t remember Alex Cole, nobody can really blame you. He actually never played a regular season game for the Padres but– like Harold Reynolds, Mike Scioscia, and Mark Prior after him– managed to find his way onto a gen-u-ine major league baseball card as a member of the team.”

The Bullpen in 1998 and 2013 – Padres Public

“In their haste to shout through the interwebs that, “Street, Gregerson, et al. SUCK!” fans forget that just a short while ago the Padres’ bullpen accomplished something it hadn’t done since 1998: Hold an opponent scoreless for 11+ innings in one game.
