Daily Friar 8.13.13 

The Padres lost a laugher last night. The game quickly got out of hand as Edinson Volquez couldn’t pitch yet again in Coors Field. This will be good to know for the Rockies once Volquez becomes a free agent. He gave up five early runs and that was enough for the Rockies to win. He left the game in the fifth inning after allowing eight runs, all of them earned.

Things went from bad to worse when the game was delayed just over an hour due to rain (why they didn’t call it, I have no idea) but when the game resumed the Rockies score six more runs. All in all they score fourteen compared to the Padres’ two, which came off a home run from Jedd Gyorko and Jaff Decker. For Jaff Decker it was his first homer and first hit of his major league career. So it was another frustrating game to say the least and they do it all over again today as Eric Stults will take on Jeff Manship at 5:40 PST.

Padres News:

Coors Field remains unfriendly to Volquez – Padres.com

“It was certainly a moment to savor for the 23-year-old left fielder and, really, about the only highlight in an otherwise dreary evening for the Padres, as the Rockies scored early and often on their way to a 14-2 victory before a crowd of 30,986 at Coors Field.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Stults allowed two runs — one earned — over seven innings in a 4-2 victory at Coors Field on June 8 and limited Colorado to four hits while going the distance in a 2-1 home win July 9.”

Jaff Decker and the San Diego outfield – Fangraphs

“This year, Decker has come back and shown he’s healthy. He’s cut the strikeout rate, which is good news, but now the power has gone a bit south as well.”

An interview with Keyvius Sampson – MadFriars

“But after a rough few outings in San Antonio Keyvius turned it around with a 10-4 record and a 2.26 ERA. In 18 starts he had 110 strikeouts in 103.1 innings pitched against only 33 walks. His last seven starts in AA were even better as he went 5-0 with a 1.65 ERA.”

Edinson Volquez should lose his rotation job – Gaslamp Ball

“Scanlan was ripping Padres pitchers, Volquez in particular, for letting hitters get comfortable in the batter’s box.  Instead of throwing inside occasionally they repeatedly throw outside and let hitters dive out over the plate.”

Padres Memorable Moments Recap – Padres Trail at Padres Public

“Friday night the Ted Williams (San Diego) Chapter of SABR hosted the Padres Memorable Moments event at the Scripps Ranch Library.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-12-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

The AZL Padres won a shootout against the AZL Dodgers due to a strong start from Pete Kelich and an outstanding day from Franmil Reyes. Max Fried started for the TinCaps; he walked 6 and struck out 6 batters over 5.1 innings pitched.”

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.
