Daily Friar 9.12.13 

In typical Padres fashion they lost a game the night after scoring a ton of runs. This time they followed up an eight run outing with a two run game. Eric Stults only allowed two runs himself, but Nick Vincent and Brad Boxberger allowed one run each, which ended the Padres’ winning streak. The good news on the night is that Tommy Medica hit a home run for his first major league hit and Jedd Gyorko added another home run to his great rookie season. The Padres can still take the series as Tyson Ross takes on Roy Halladay at 4:05 PST.

Medica homers vs. veteran Lee in MLB debut –

“Medica struck out in his first at-bat, but three innings later, while his teammates were out playing in the Texas League championship series, he hit a home run to left-center field, one of the bright spots in the Padres’ 4-2 loss to the Phillies before a crowd of 30,351 at Citizens Bank Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Ross, winless in his last five starts, has received one run of support in each of those outings. He allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings Saturday in a 2-1 victory over Colorado.”

Padres mailbag – Bill Center of The Union Tribune

“I’d like to see the Padres add a front-line, every-day outfielder for 2014. But that might take packaging an existing Padre with possibly a pitching prospect in a trade. Sadly, there needs to be subtraction to go with any additions.”

“Last night during the Padres game in Philadelphia, the Phillie Phanatic paid a visit to the Fox Sports San Diego booth to visit with Dick Enberg and Mark “Mud” Grant. Let’s just say the results were both expected and surprising. And hilarious.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-11-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

 “The Missions lost to the Travelers 1-0 and their series is now tied 1-1. It was a tough hitting day for the Missions; Yeison Asencio had the best night at the plate and he was just 1-3 with a double. Eddie Bonine great performance lowered his ERA in the playoffs to 0.60.”
