Daily Friar 8.10.13 

The Padres are in a bit of a tough stretch right now as they have dropped their third game in a row. This has been one streaky season as either the team is really hot or really cold; there really is no middle ground. Last weekend against the Yankees they managed to score runs in bunches. Lately though it’s been a couple runs if we are lucky. Yesterday saw the Reds beat up on Andrew Cashner as he was only helped with two runs. Home runs are nice, but they are even better when runners are on base. Logan Forsythe and Will Venable both hit jacks, but they were solo shots. Two runs is not enough to win you games most of the time and the Padres found that out last night. Both teams are at it again today as Tyson Ross goes up against Tony Cingrani at 4:10 PST.

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.
