Daily Friar 6.14.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Padres won the game last night. And in doing so have also won the series, and are going for the sweep today. The pitching was spot on (though not as spot on as Matt Cain was last night) and got the job done. The bad news is that our RISP hitting is still having issues. Case in point was the 9th inning we had bases loaded and no one out. Cameron Maybin struck out and Nick Hundley hit into a double play. It goes without saying that this needs to change. Here are your Padres links for today:
