Daily Friar 9.8.13 

It was a low scoring affair last night as the Padres played to their strengths and were able to beat the Rockies 2-1. Tyson Ross was up to his usual antics in driving hitters mad going seven innings of shut out ball. Luke Gregerson gave up the one run that tied the game in the eighth. That was until Jedd Gyorko sent a ball just over the right field wall to give the Padres the 2-1 lead that ultimately won the game. With this win the series is secure and the sweep can be had today as Ian Kennedy takes on Chad Bettis at 1:10 PST.

Gyorko’s jack carries Padres to win over Rockies – Padres.com

“Ross tossed seven scoreless innings on Saturday and the Padres got a big swing — and a big defensive play, too — from rookie second baseman Jedd Gyorko in a 2-1 victory over the Rockies at Petco Park.”

A preview of today’s game – ESPN

“Kennedy has seemed comfortable at Petco Park lately, going 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in his last two outings there, but not in recent matchups with Colorado. He’s 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in two meetings this season but both of those games were at Coors Field.”

Padres are optimistic on Maybin’s surgery – Union Tribune

“And the initial reports on Friday’s surgery to center fielder Cameron Maybin’s right wrist were positive, although the surgery was apparently more involved than predicted.”

Chris Denorfia displays his heart and hustle – Gaslamp Ball

“After being presented with the Heart and Hustle Award by the MLBPAA last night, Denorfia showed us just why he deserved it.”

Meet Padres pitcher Burch Smith – Padres 360

“During his stay with the Tucson Padres, he pitched well in the hitter friendly league.  In 12 games, he was 5-1 with a 3.39 ERA with 65 strikeouts in 61 innings and only 17 walks.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-7-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Both the Missions and the TinCaps endured losses tonight. They both played in close games as they lost by a combined 3 runs. The Missions were unable to get a clutch hit while the TinCaps endured sloppy defense which allowed 3 unearned runs to score.”

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
