Daily Friar 7.10.13 

Eric Stults! That’s really all you need to know about last night’s game. Eric Stults went the distance and just missed the shut out, but most importantly gave the Padres the win to finally snap that ten game losing streak. Now they are starting a new streak, this time it’s a winning one as they look to add on with Andrew Cashner on the hill tonight. I was so happy that Bud Black left Stults in to finish that game and the fact that Stults finished what he started with such command. In the nine innings of work he gave up just four hits and the one run, which came on a bloop single into right field. We knew that losing streak wouldn’t last forever, but it was really nice to see it finish before it started approaching record numbers. I mentioned it yesterday that the last time the Padres lost ten in a row they won on the eleventh day, and that is exactly what they did last night. The road back to .500 starts now!

This Date In Baseball History: July 10, 1934

The second annual All-Star Game produces Carl Hubbell’s amazing feat of striking out five future Hall of Famers in a row. Off to a shaky start with two on base in the first inning, Hubbell uses his screwball to fan Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Jimmie Foxx. He adds Al Simmons and Joe Cronin to start the second. – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Stults gives Padres jolt to end skid vs. Rox – Padres.com

“Stults pumped his fist after striking out the next batter, Josh Rutledge, on his 122nd pitch of the night, sealing a 2-1 victory for the Padres and bringing a season long 10-game losing streak to a merciful end in front of 22,733 fans at Petco Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The right-hander [Cashner] is 0-1 with a 7.59 ERA in two starts against the Rockies (43-48), but yielded three runs in seven innings of a 6-5, 12-inning win at Coors Field on June 6.”

Padres sign No.1 pick Renfroe – Union Tribune

“Renfroe, 21, the 13th overall pick signed a contract with a $2.678 million bonus Tuesday and will report to the club’s short-season, Single-A Eugene affiliate in Oregon Wednesday. If all goes well in the Northwest League, the Padres are hoping the corner outfielder out of Mississippi State will finish the season with low Single-A Fort Wayne.”

Miles Mikolas recalled from AAA – NBC Sports

“Mikolas was up briefly earlier this season but didn’t appear in a game. He’s posted a 3.14 ERA over 39 appearances at Tucson this season and will work in middle relief.”

Padres are stretching out Ross in Triple-A – MLB.com

“The Padres are sending reliever Tyson Ross down to Triple-A Tucson in order to get him stretched out so he can fill in for the injured Clayton Richard.”

Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey went to Boston – Gaslamp Ball

“With all the bad news of late (Grandal injury, Garfinkel stepping down, the losing streak) I thought now would be a good time to brighten peoples days with an update on the famous traveling jersey. So he it goes.”

Carlos Quentin enjoying quiet yet productive season – Chicken Friars

“Since May 24th, Carlos has been one of his team’s most steady contributors from an offensive standpoint.  Over his last 36 games, Quentin has been on an offensive tear as he has recorded a .346 batting average (44 for 127) and a .425 on-base percentage.”

Assessing the losing streak – Padres Public

“Where does this streak fit?  Let’s take a look at their current 10-game losing streak, rating each game by a highly technical process and assigning grades of ‘never in it‘, ‘fought valiantly but lost‘, or ‘should have won‘.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-9-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The majority of the farm system had the night off as only Tucson and Lake Elsinore participated in games tonight. Led by 4 hits from Yonder Alonso and a grand slam from Brandon Allen, the T-Pads won 11-5. Lake Elsinore was shutout for the second time in 3 nights.”

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.
