Daily Friar 6.25.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The Padres lost and won yesterday. The loss came internally as a member of the Padres family passed away yesterday afternoon. Darrel Akerfelds passed away at the age of 50 after battling pancreatic cancer. Such a terrible disease for a great man to have to fight. His death didn’t keep the Padres down though, they came out and put on a masterful pitching performance. In doing so they won the game, won the series, and also put up a winning record against the American League for the season. It was a great finish and it shows that good things can come, and that this team can be in high spirits. Here are your Padres links for today:

“Gregerson and Thatcher combined with closer Huston Street to preserve a strong performance from starter Edinson Volquez, who tossed 6 and 2/3 scoreless innings before handing a 2-0 lead to the ‘pen. That group did Akerfelds proud and made the lead stand up for a 2-0 victory in a game that meant more than the standings might indicate it would. “
