Daily Friar 9.3.13 

In the battle for last place in the NL West, the San Diego Padres came out with a 4-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Padres starter Ian Kennedy was solid through six innings of work: 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, and 7 SO. In the second inning, the Padres gave Kennedy a comfortable 3-run lead with an RBI single by Ronny Cedeno and later a 2-RBI single by Chris Denorfia. Catcher Nick Hundley padded that lead in the fourth with a solo shot to deep left-center, his 11th of the season. To seal the win, closer Huston Street was called upon to record his 26th save of the season. Make sure to tune-in tonight at 7:10 PT as Robbie Erlin faces fellow southpaw Madison Bumgarner for the Giants. Erlin will be making his sixth career major league start. Go Padres!

Instant replay was used for the first time in a major league game. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez homered down the left field line off of Rays reliever Troy Percival in the ninth inning as part of an 8-4 Yankee win. Umpire Brian Runge originally called it a home run and has his call upheld after further review. – Baseball-Reference
