Daily Friar 8.28.13 

It was a wild one last night in Arizona. Fandom points to all of you who stayed up to watch our Padres endure another tough loss this season. After using six bullpen arms in Sunday’s 15-inning marathon win over the Chicago Cubs, the Padres bullpen was worked hard yet again last night. Ian Kennedy didn’t have the start he had hoped in his return to Arizona as he struggled with his command, giving up five walks and six runs in 4 1/3 innings. After his departure, six arms were used again out of the bullpen. This time, only until the 10th inning when D-backs’ second baseman Aaron Hill hit a walk-off RBI single off right-hander Dale Thayer. Last night’s was a tough one to swallow, but still make sure to tune-in for tonight’s game at 6:40 PT as the young southpaw Robbie Erlin takes the mound for the Padres against fellow left-hander Wade Miley.

Phillies slugger and future Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt passes Willie McCovey and San Diego’s own Ted Williams on the all-time home run by hitting his 522nd career bomb against, you guessed it, the San Diego Padres. Also, be sure to wish Padres OF Carlos Quentin (31) and Padres minor league pitcher Matt Andriese (24) a happy birthday! – Baseball Reference
