Daily Friar 7.27.13 

Coming off a series victory against the Brewers, the Padres fell flat on their face against the D-Backs. There was really nothing positive about the game. From a pitching standpoint, Eric Stults was not good and the bullpen did little to contain the damage. Defensively, Nick Hundley committed a costly error that led to 2 unearned runs in the 2nd inning. Offensively, the Padres only managed to get 3 hits over 9 innings, and they couldn’t score a run. On the bright side, it will be hard for the Padres to do worse against the D-Backs in today’s game, and watching Cashner pitch is always fun.

The Padres are the 6th club to score 20 runs in a game this year; the last time that happened was 1929. – Baseball Reference

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-26-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“The AZL Padres provided an offensive explosion due to a career night from Jose Ruiz and 2 RBI from Dustin Peterson.

Tucson and Fort Wayne were both postponed tonight.”

Whether SD is in the midst of an exciting playoff run, or an uneventful off-season, I love following them and I love writing about them.
