Daily Friar 9.4.13 


The San Diego Padres are now in sole possession of fourth place in the NL West standings after a 3-2 victory yesterday against the defending world champion San Francisco Giants. Robbie Erlin recorded his first major league hit and RBI, and despite the high pitch count, pitched a solid game as well: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO. Catcher Nick Hundley had a good night at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored. Huston Street recorded the save for the second straight night, his 27th on the season. Make sure to tune-in for this afternoon’s game at 3:40 PT as Eric Stults faces Tim Lincecum of the Giants. Get your broom sticks ready. Padres are going for the sweep. Also, I want to share this video with you. I’m sure many have seen it before. Any time the Padres are going for their third straight win, I think of this movie.
