Daily Friar 8.4.13 

The Padres were coming off that very strong and convincing win on Friday night and were looking to jump out and clinch the series against the Yankees last night. However, that was not to be as the Yankees were able to win the game. It’s not that the Padres had a bad pitching game, it’s just that Ivan Nova was very tough against the Padres’ bats. Tyson Ross was outstanding last night and just made one mistake that did him in for the night. He deserved a win and was instead tagged with the loss, but one thing is for certain the future is bright for him. The Petco Park crowd was also given the opportunity to see Mariano Rivera get another save. So now that that is out of the way we can move on to today’s game and hopefully the Padres will be able to take the series from the Evil Empire. In fact they have to. If you follow me on twitter I mentioned Star Wars a couple times. Friday night was A New Hope, Saturday was The Empire Strikes Back and today is Return of the Jedi. The good guys will win.

This Date In Baseball History: August 4, 1993

OF Tony Gwynn of the Padres gets six hits in San Diego’s 11 – 10 win over the Giants. It is the 4th time this season he has five or more hits in a game, tying a major league record set by Willie Keeler in 1897, and equaled by Ty Cobb and Stan Musial. – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

Ross’ early brilliance turns into defeat vs. Yanks – Padres.com

“Curtis Granderson drilled a two-run home run to right field in the seventh inning to lead the Yankees to a 3-0 victory over the Padres in front of a sold-out crowd of 44,184 at Petco Park on Saturday night.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Ian Kennedy admitted being traded isn’t a great feeling, but he’s ready to help improve a San Diego Padres rotation that has one of the worst ERAs in the NL.”

Padres sign shortstop Ronny Cedeño – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“In what has been speculated as a preemptive move in the event that shortstop Everth Cabrera is suspended by Major League Baseball, the Padres have signed SS Ronny Cedeño to a minor league contract with the Single-A Lake Elsinore Storm.”

Colt Hynes taking over as left specialist – Padres.com

“But they didn’t trade away all of their lefty relievers, as rookie Colt Hynes now steps into that role after the team dealt Thatcher and Minor League pitcher Matt Stites to Arizona for starting pitcher Ian Kennedy.”

Daily Farm Report: August 3 – MadFriars

“A tough night for the system as only the Storm and the AZL Padres come out on top. It’s been a good year for LE’s James Needy and there are some interesting position prospects in the AZL this year.”

Former Padres attending a re-creation night – Padres Public

“Kurt Bevacqua and Steve Arlin will attend the event and are just two of the former Padres Bob Chandler will interview during the re-creation.”

A recap of the first day of the Yankees series (with photos) – Padres 360

“I can’t recall ever seeing this many people at batting practice! In addition to many Yankee fans, there was a true media frenzy going on as well – you would have thought this was the All-Star Game or the World Series!”

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.
