Daily Friar 6.15.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

There is a word that I haven’t been able to use yet all season, and that is SWEEP! As of last night the Padres have swept their first series of the season. It came against our natural rival the Seattle Mariners, and we are now one step closer to claiming the Vedder cup as ours for this season. It’s so nice to see the team winning and having fun doing it. Putting up crooked numbers on the board for once as well in an inning. There are still things that need to be ironed out before this team makes an incredible playoff run, but you never know what can happen. Here are your Padres links for today:
