Daily Friar 9.28.13 

Well, the Padres fell 7-3 to the San Francisco Giants in the first game of the of the final series of the season. Burch Smith struggled with his command as he walked three batters and left too many pitches up. Giants hitters capitalized on his mistakes as they homered three times off of him. However, Smith didn’t slow down on the strikeouts as he fanned eight Giants over 5 2/3 innings. Also worth noting is Jedd Gyorko adding to his team-leading RBI total with his 57th of the season while Chase Headley continued to rack-up the doubles with his 34th.

Today’s game is an early one at 1:05 PT. Make sure to tune-in as the Padres send Eric Stults (10-13, 3.94) to the mound to face Yusmeiro Petit (4-0, 2.84) of the Giants. Let’s go Padres! Finish strong!
