Daily Friar 7.6.13 

For the first time since last Friday in Miami, the Padres were able to score more than two runs in a game. This was in large part due to Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin both finding the seats. They scored five runs last night. Five runs that should be enough to win a game, but alas it was not to be so as Andrew Cashner had a very very off night. Cashner wasn’t able to go even three innings last night as he was taken out for Tim Stauffer. You know it’s going to be a bad night when your middle relief gives you more innings than your starter. This was the case as Cashner gave us two, Stauffer gave us three, and then Thatcher, Thayer and Street combined for the final three. Believe it or not, but the final three innings were entirely uneventful. Thayer only gave up one hit in his inning and that was it for those guys. So on a night where the bullpen was able to keep things in check, it was the starting pitching that failed on us. When can things click and become one? Is it too much to ask for to have something go right for once? This seven game losing streak has been very hard to watch and maybe there was a sign of offensive life tonight to help end it. I say maybe as we look to take on Jordan Zimmerman tonight who is yet another tough starter for the Nationals. Jason Marquis takes the mound for the Padres to try and counter.

This Date In Baseball History: July 6, 1956

Ford Frick inaugurates the Cy Young Award, to honor the outstanding pitcher each year. The BBWAA will do the voting. Only one pitcher will be honored each year until 1967, when a pitcher will be selected in each league. – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Cashner chased in third as losing skid hits seven – Padres.com

“After a breezy first inning, Cashner lost command of his fastball and missed in some critical sequences as the Nationals scored five runs in the second inning on their way to an 8-5 victory over the Padres in front of a crowd of 33,979 at Nationals Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“San Diego (40-47) opened its 10-game road trip with a 9-2 victory over Miami on June 28, but the Padres have managed 12 runs in seven consecutive losses since. They’ve dropped 11 of their last 13.”

At 33, Stults throwing a career curve – Union Tribune

“Not so in San Diego. Having made his first Opening Day roster since being drafted out of Bethel College in 2002, Stults has been arguably the most consistent starter on a pitching-strapped team. The victim of spotty run support, he is 6-7 this season with a 3.70 ERA, best among Padres starters.”

Yonder Alonso to get some work in this weekend – NBC Sports

“The Padres are sending Alonso to Triple-A Tucson in order to do it, which is an indication that he’s close to beginning a minor league rehab assignment. If all goes well, there’s a chance he could be activated prior to the All-Star break.”

Comparing the streaks – Padres Public

“But this losing streak. This stupid losing streak. It’s draining. It sucks the wind out of your sails. During this losing streak I no longer look forward to the game but dread it. Because I know something bad is going to happen.”

Five good things from the Boston Series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“As the road trip has turned brutal with the Padres losing their season high sixth straight game for the first time this season, I am again tasked to find five good things from this series in Boston. This might be the most daunting one yet but I am up for the challenge. So here they are.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 7-5-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Dustin Peterson was the lone bright spot in the AZL Padres’ 9-1 defeat. Despite the fact that Emeralds starter Yimmi Brasoban allowed just 1 hit over 5 scoreless innings, the Emeralds lost 4-3. Lake Elsinore staged a ferocious 9th inning comeback to beat the Blaze 8-5. Both the Missions and T-Pads won 1-run games and the TinCaps won a shootout 16-10 due to 2 home runs from Rodney Daal.”

NL West News and Rumors:

Dodgers, Giants make offers for Ricky Nolasco – MLB.com

“The Marlins have had conversations with more than a half dozen teams regarding Nolasco. They may be waiting to see if any more tempting offers surface.”

Dodgers sign Ian Stewart – MLBTR

“Stewart never made it to the bigs this season, as he was outrighted to Chicago’s highest minor league affiliate after struggling during an early-season rehab stint. His cumulative line this season (all for Triple-A Iowa) is just .168/.286/.372.”

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.
