Daily Friar 7.29.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

I’m back now from a very busy weekend. I hope that you all enjoyed the weekend as our Padres took on the Diamondbacks in what proved to be a very good series for them. I want to thank Alex Bartlett for taking over for me while I was spending time with my family. So here we are, Monday again and the Padres actually had a good road trip. Overall they went 6-4 over the ten game span with majority of the wins coming against the teams we should be beating. The two losses against St. Louis, while rough, should be expected. Let’s face it, the Cardinals are a damn good team and they should be beating teams like the Padres. On the flip side is that the Padres are a decent team that should be beating up bad teams like the Brewers; and they did just that. They also took two out of three against Arizona, which I shouldn’t say is surprising but it was at Chase Field. The Padres historically have not played well there and it actually showed in the first game with that 10-0 loss. They got their revenge though with a 12-3 and yesterday’s 1-0 win. What a performance from Tyson Ross to pitch eight innings of shut out ball. That was quite impressive. Padres are home now to close out July but it is against the very tough Cincinnati Reds. This will bring us right to the trade deadline so we’ll have to see who will be coming and going.

News and notes from Surprise – MadFriars

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.
