Daily Friar 8.9.13 

The Padres had a much needed day off yesterday after being swept in the two game series by the Orioles. Overall they went 4-4 on the home stand against the Reds, Yankees and Os. Now they are set to start a stretch of thirteen games that starts with a road trip to Cincinnati and Denver before coming back home to face the Mets and Pirates. I hate to say it Padres fans, but this could be rough stretch to watch. The first test will be on the shoulders of Andrew Cashner as he faces off against Bronson Arroyo at 4:10 today.

This Date In Baseball History: August 9, 1990

San Diego SS Garry Templeton collects his 2,000th major league hit, exactly 14 years after getting his first. The Padres beat the Braves, 7 – 0, with Bruce Hurst winning over Charlie Leibrandt. – Baseball Reference

Padres News:

First pitch strikes big reason for Vincent’s success – Padres.com

“The biggest reason for Vincent’s success has been his ability to throw strikes, or at least pitches that opposing hitters will swing at for a strike. He’s only walked five batters in 25 innings.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Andrew Cashner (8-5, 3.80), though, has been given ample support lately and hopes that trend continues in his first start against the Reds. The right-hander has won all three of his outings since the All-Star break, posting a 3.79 ERA, while getting a combined 20 runs of support.”

Quentin headed to disabled list? – Union Tribune

“Padres manager Bud Black mentioned the possibility Tuesday as the left fielder missed a fifth straight start due to his right knee.”

An interview with Jake Bauers – MadFriars

“After signing with the Padres he reported to Surprise, Arizona where after initially struggling in his first few weeks he has started to hit with his batting average rising nearly 100 points since July 27.”

The search for the Lane Field plaque – Gaslamp Ball

“With an hour and a half to kill and no friends to speak of, I took it upon myself to find the Lane Field Plaque.  It was placed there to commemorate the home of Pacific Coast League Padres from 1936-1957.”

Chase Headley is poised to break a Padre record – Padres Public

“Now Headley is chasing another record. Nate Colbert has the most strikeouts (773) in Padres history. However, his lead over second-place Headley–who has already passed Phil Nevin and Garry Templeton this season–is far from safe.”

Five good things from the Orioles series – Jeremy Nash of The Friarhood

“This is because, frankly, the Padres played one of the most boring games in memory followed by an exciting contest which turned into a blowout in a blink of an eye.”

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

“The only team to earn a victory on the farm tonight was the Missions. Led by a strong pitching performance from Matt Wisler and a great day at the plate from Reymond Fuentes, the Missions won 7-2. The rest of the farm lost due to offensive troubles.”

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.
