Daily Friar 7.9.13 

Are you still with me Padres fans? I know this has been quite the rough stretch, but things have to come to an end eventually right. I know that you who are reading this are the true Padres fans that will stick by this team no matter what. I think we lost the band wagoners a long time ago, so we can have our team back all to ourselves. I know it’s hard to be fans of this, but they are our team and will always be. Hey it could be worse, we could be Astros fans. So the tenth loss in a row came last night in the form of a 4-2 finish against the Rockies. Edinson Volquez started off the game by giving up two quick runs and it looked to be an easy game for the Rockies when it came to 4-0. Then the Padres did scrap back a little as they scored two, but even a little tease in the bottom of the ninth wound up being just that. It was back in 2010 that the Padres put up their last ten game losing streak that stretched from August to the beginning of September. They didn’t get to eleven however, as they beat the Dodgers on September 6th. I remember it well because I was celebrating my 21st birthday that night at Petco. Let’s hope they can win today and not reach eleven.

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Former Colorado left-hander Eric Stults (6-7, 3.70) gets the nod for San Diego, having defeated the Rockies (43-47) at Coors Field on June 8. He held them to two runs — one earned — over seven innings of a 4-2 victory.”

Bud Black needs to show leadership to stop current slide – Rant Sports

Pitcher of the month for June – MadFriars
