Daily Friar 8.3.12 

Daily Friar Banner Rennick

Remember how last month the Padres were giving teams one game out of the series, and then stomping on them for the rest of it? Well the Reds have given the Padres a taste of their own medicine. After winning the first game in dominant fashion, the Padres then dropped the next three to the Reds. But let’s face it, the Reds are a damn good team. The Padres did give a fight though by winning close games and hitting home runs left and right. Congratulations go out to Eddy Rodriguez for homering in his first MLB at bat. Tonight the Padres come back home to face the Mets, and first up is R.A. Dickey. I wouldn’t expect a lot of hits tonight. Here are your Padres links for today:

Padres calling up RHP Cory Burns – NBC Sports
“Burns, who was acquired from the Indians for outfielder Aaron Cunningham last December, has an excellent 2.63 ERA and 77/16 K/BB ratio over 65 innings of relief this season with Triple-A Tucson.”

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.
