Daily Friar 6.27.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

The problem I’ve been having with the pitching staff this year, besides the fact that it’s a revolving door, is that they have a hard time getting out of unnecessary jams. Case in point last night, Kip Wells throws the ball away during a possible double play chance. Instead of locking down and getting the next two outs like a good pitcher would, the Astros got the better part of him and put up 4 runs in the innings. Errors and bad pitching are a terrible combination. Wells gave up 5 runs last night, only 2 earned. I’m sorry but if you’re going to give up runs they should all be earned. Especially when you were the one that made the error in the first place. In other quick news, Athony Rizzo went 2-4 with an RBI double in his Cubs debut. Here are your Padres links for today:

“His wide throw to second base with one out in a tie game kept the fifth inning alive, and the Astros capitalized on the extra outs, scoring four runs after the error and sending the Padres to a 5-3 loss at Minute Maid Park.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
