Daily Friar 7.28.13 

Well the Padres got revenge against the D-Backs last night. After being shutout 10-0 in the first game, San Diego bounced back and scored 12 runs. Last night’s game was really fun to watch; multiple players contributed offensively, Cashner did a good job pitching out of jams, and Cabrera had a great defensive play to end the game and bail out Dale Thayer. Today, Tyson Ross does battle against Patrick Corbin. While the matchup does seem favorable to Arizona, Ross had a really good start his last time out. If Ross can pound the strike zone and mix in the changeup, we may see a good pitcher’s duel today.
