Daily Friar 8.12.13 

The Padres offense was absolutely dreadful yesterday. There really is no way to sugar coat this one and friends I would rather you hear the cold hard truth then to be smothered in lies. They had plenty of times to win the game but failed to do so as the one hit with runners in scoring position eluded them all day. Ian Kennedy pitched a heck of a game and made one mistake pitch that tied the game up. Ultimately the Reds offense came to and won the game for them and the series as well.

The Padres had eleven hits in the game and were only able to score two runs. Why? Because they were 1 for 17 in the RISP category, leaving 15 men on base. This made a grand total of 1 for 29 with RISP for the weekend series. This equates to a .034 average AS A TEAM! Awful is what that is. Today it’s the first of a series in Colorado as Edinson Volquez takes on Jhoulys Chacin at 5:40 PST.

This Date In Baseball History: August 12, 1984

In one of the ugliest brawl-filled games in major league history‚ the Braves beat the Padres, 5 – 3, in Atlanta. The trouble begins when Atlanta’s Pascual Perez hits Alan Wiggins in the back with the first pitch of the game‚ and escalates as the Padres pitchers retaliate by throwing at Perez all four times he comes to the plate. All in all‚ the game features two bench-clearing brawls‚ the second of which includes several fans‚ and 19 ejections‚ including both managers and both replacement managers. Padres manager Dick Williams will be suspended for 10 days and fined $10‚000‚ while Braves manager Joe Torre and 5 players will each receive three-game suspensions. But the brawl in Atlanta‚ as Dave Campbell later observes‚ “woke the Padres up out of their doldrums.” – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Kennedy dominates; Padres fall on sac fly in extras – Padres.com

“As members of the media shuffled out of the visiting manager’s office at Great American Ball Park on Sunday following the Padres’ 3-2 loss to the Reds, San Diego skipper Bud Black slammed a drink into the trash can next to his desk.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“The Padres may be hoping a return to Denver can get their offense going after batting .197 while scoring three runs or fewer in each of their last five games.”

Promoted prospects off to fast start – Union Tribune

“Several minor league players promoted in the Padres organization over the past week had an immediate impact with their new teams.”

Did the Padres rob the Diamondbacks? – Rant Sports

“Ultimately, while a reliever like Thatcher will prove an asset to the Diamondbacks, arms at the front end of the rotation are a premium in this league.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-11-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

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.
