Daily Friar 7.25.13 

The Padres had a chance to take the series last night, but were unable to do so. Normally I would use the word fail in that situation, however, I think fail is too harsh a word. They did all they could against a pitcher that was just on last night. Kyle Lohse pitched a great game and shut the Padres down. As Jedd Gyorko put it, he had a hard slider all night and the Padres stood no chance. It was a game that could have easily gone either way as Sean O’Sullivan pitched into tough luck as he went just over six innings and only gave up two runs. So really he pitched pretty well and in any other circumstance he could have won the game. So here we are today with one game left in this series to get through and the Padres still have a chance to walk out of Milwaukee having won three of four. I am taking a break from the Daily Friar this weekend as I have a family thing going on. So in the meantime Alex Bartlett, who you all know from the Daily Farm Round-Up, will be taking over for the next few days. I’ll be back on Monday. Enjoy your weekend and go Padres!

This Date In Baseball History: July 25, 1990

Before the start of the Padres-Reds game in San Diego, comedienne Roseanne Barr screeches out a rendition of the National Anthem, finishing with a crotch grab that causes a crescendo of boos. Ed Whitson then wins, 2 – 1, for the Pads. – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Lohse frustrates Padres’ bid to take series – Padres.com

“In his second start for his hometown team, O’Sullivan allowed two earned runs over 6 1/3 innings, but a walk early in the game came into play during the Brewers’ 3-1 victory over the Padres in front of a crowd of 25,551 at Miller Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The right-hander [Volquez] did have his best start of the season against Milwaukee on April 24, throwing seven shutout innings in a 2-1 home win that prevented a Brewers sweep.”

Blanks unlikely to come off DL right away – Padres.com

“But as much as he would like to get back in the lineup, Blanks is being cautious so that he does not re-aggravate the injury by returning too soon.”

Some news on Padres hitters – Fox Sports

“Given all that, the Rangers might prefer lesser hitters at a lower price. The team, however, has not yet mounted a serious push for Ruggiano, and the Padres do not plan to trade Denorfia (or, for that matter, Carlos Quentin), sources said.”

Padres sign Bryce Morrow – M Live

“He played for the Traverse City Beach Bums in 2011 before moving on to Evansville where he earned an All-Star nomination this year after going 6-2 with a 3.30 ERA in 11 starts.”

A review of Wines at the Park – Padres 360

“Their selection is good and the prices are comparable to what you might find in a restaurant … not surprising as they are presented by Donovan’s.”

Halls of Fame – Padres Public

“Immortality is a literal impossibility that we play at by constructing Halls of Fame to honor our heroes. Who can resist the allure of “enshrinement” by an institution that promises to perpetuate the memory of their deeds into the future?”

Today the Padres got Joe Thatcher – Gaslamp Ball

“This day six years ago, the Padres acquired Joe Thatcher and two others from Milwaukee for struggling reliever Scott Linebrink. Thatcher made his major league debut the following day and has been with San Diego ever since.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-24-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Offense was a problem for the farm teams that occupy the three highest levels of the minor leagues. Tucson failed to get an extra-base hit, the Missions were shutout, and Lake Elsinore was held to 4 hits. On the lower levels of the farm, Zach Eflin turned in an excellent start while 2013 first round pick, Hunter Renfroe, went yard and 2013 second round pick, Dustin Peterson, had 2 RBI’s.”

MLB News and Rumors:

Rangers are targeting a few hitters – Foul Territory

“…have set their sights on Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios, San Francisco right fielder Hunter Pence and Seattle designated hitter Kendrys Morales to fill a need for a right-handed hitter, according to baseball sources.”

Jake Peavy rumors – MLBTR

“The Sox aren’t sure what they want to do with Peavy yet, writes ESPN’s Buster Olney, but their asking price is ‘really high.'”

About the author: Matt Rennick

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.
