Daily Friar 6.30.13 

Edinson Volquez pitched well in game one of this series. Yesterday was Eric Stults’ turn and he didn’t do so hot. Think about that for a second, the guy that has been pretty much the most consistent in the rotation had a worse outing than the guy that you never know what you’re going to get. Stults only lasted 3.2 innings giving up five earned runs in that time. Tim Stauffer then came in and was able to pitch pretty well for 3.1 innings only giving up one run. The game was over after the first inning though, as the Padres were only able to touch Jacob Turner for one run as he went the full nine. The only run came when Will Venable tripled and Nick Hundley drove him in on a double. You know how I am about runners in scoring position, and last night the Padres did not do well. They were 1-3 compared to the Marlins’ 4-8. 1-3 comes to a .333 average, but it was only three opportunities. So now we sit at a tie series with two more to play. Very early start today as the game is already going.
