Daily Friar 9.18.13 

Well, the Padres are doing a good job of playing “spoiler” again this season. With their third win in a row yesterday and a Cardinals win, the Pirates are now trailing by one game in the NL Central. Although, the Pirates still have a 1.5 game lead in the NL Wild Card race. Seeing as the Padres won the first two games against the Pirates this series and there are still two games left, the Padres look to continue their winning ways and potentially diminish the Pirates lead in the NL Wild Card as well.

Today, the Padres send Tyson Ross to the mound to face right-hander Charlie Morton. The Padres continue their series against the Pirates at 4:05 PT, so make sure to tune-in to the game as the Padres look for their fourth win in a row.

This Date in Baseball History: September 18, 1996

“Boston’s Roger Clemens fans 20 Detroit Tigers, without walking a single batter, to tie his record for most strikeouts in a 9-inning game. The Rocket holds the Tigers to four hits en route to a 4 – 0 shutout.” Also, former Padres outfielder Jody Gerut was born on this day 36 years ago. Happy Birthday, Jody! – Baseball-Reference
