Daily Friar 7.30.13 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Well how about that for a win? The Padres were coming off a 1-0 win in Arizona against Patrick Corbin. This was somewhat unexpected since Corbin had won twelve games going into that game. So really the low scoring affair was no surprise. Then last night came a game against the Reds, one of the highest scoring teams in the MLB. So when the Padres held the Reds to one run the entire game it was a pretty impressive accomplishment. Of course on the flip side is that Mike Leake was able to shut down the offense for most of the night. Again this is a pitcher that has dominated for the better part of the season and the Padres did struggle against him. Things looked to be in the bag for the Reds when Aroldis Chapman came into the bottom of the ninth for the save. However, the Padres decided he wasn’t going to get that save. Yonder Alonso showed great patience, as he was able to work out a walk to get on base. Then Chris Denorfia came up and had to see one pitch in order to do all the damage as he sent the ball over the center field fence for a walk-off home run. Now the Padres look to take game two of the series and extend their winning streak to four tonight with Edinson Volquez going against Mat Latos.

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.
