Daily Friar 7.26.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

It seemed that with each game against the Giants the Padres were playing better and better. First game we were slaughtered, the second game was a little better until the heartbreak at the end, then yesterday’s game was spectacular. Believe it or not these Padres are actually hitting pretty darn well over the past few weeks, and that trend continued yesterday. Tim Lincecum looked like he had things turned around for his season after coming off a good start, that was until he faced the Padres yesterday who knocked him out of the game in the 5th inning. Giving up two long home runs will do that to you though. Here are your Padres links for today:
