Daily Friar 6.18.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres did what they needed to do yesterday to get the win. Even though the bullpen tried giving the game away again in the end. The last thing you want to do after getting your first sweep of the season is to get swept in the next series. The Padres were on route to do just that, but were able to take one game from the A’s. Clayton Richard was outstanding yesterday, and he has been doing better as of late after a rough start to the season. It’s nice to see him doing better, and it’s nice to see a win come our way especially going into a series agains the Texas Rangers. Here are your Padres links for today:
