Daily Friar 7.5.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Who is this team and what have they done with the Padres? Of all the teams that the Padres have had over the past 15 years, this was the one that was able to get the first sweep in Arizona. Kind of fitting actually since this is the same team that has been able to beat some of the giants in pitching in the majors. Another giant is coming into town tonight. The Cinicinnati Reds come into town, and tonight’s matchup is nothing short of intriguing. Edinson Volquez will take the hill against Mat Latos. My hope is that Mat gets a little jittery and gives up the hits. But he has been solid lately. Volquez can beat his old club, but he needs to not be wild around the plate. It will be fun and hopefully the Padres can come out of it with their 6th win in a row. Here are your Padres links for today:
