Daily Friar 9.9.13 

The Colorado Rockies have been a thorn in the Padres’ side all season long, but they were able to exact some revenge over the weekend. Coming off a winning series against the Giants in the middle of the week, the Padres were able to sweep the Rockies in front of the home town crowd. Yesterday it was pitching that got them through yet again as Ian Kennedy went a solid five innings before turning it over to the bullpen. Nick Hundley came up huge in the seventh with a bases loaded double that cleared the bases to make the game 5-2. That wound up being the final as Huston Street grabbed his 29th save on the season. No baseball today as it is a travel day to Philadelphia for the team. So go ahead and enjoy Monday Night Football!

Hundley delivers in the Nick of time for Friars –

“Which is why his three-run pinch-hit double in the seventh inning Sunday probably felt so sweet, as the Padres completed a three-game sweep of the Rockies with a 5-2 victory in front of a crowd of 18,656 on a sun-kissed day at Petco Park.”

Dolphins name Tom Garfinkel CEO – ESPN

“He replaces former Dolphins president Mike Dee, who essentially swapped jobs and recently took over Garfinkel’s old role in San Diego.”

Padres promote Tommy Medica – Ian Edward Russell Smith of The Friarhood

“Medica has shown that he is certainly a capable hitter, sporting a .296 batting average with 57 RBI and 18 homeruns with the Missions this season. Last year with the Storm, Medica hit for a .330 batting average with 87 RBI and 19 homeruns.”

Padres rotation could change in September – Union Tribune

“The Padres want to take more looks at September call-ups Erlin and Smith while trying to control Cashner’s innings and possibly giving Stults a little extra rest over the final three weeks.”

Down year could keep Chase Headley in San Diego – Rant Sports

“When you add it all up, it’s very likely that we could see Headley back with the Padres in 2014, at least up until the trade deadline.”

Nick Hundley’s birthday card – Gaslamp Ball

“He’s shown celebrating, much as he had cause to today — not only because he turned 30 but also because he delivered a pinch-hit, three-run double in the seventh inning to take the lead for good.”

A look at the infield – Padres Public

“The only thing that will possibly be affected by Cabrera’s suspension is the salary he’ll earn in arbitration this offseason. He’s still the starter. Gyorko continues to be a candidate for a long-term contract extension, and will certainly be starting in the infield next season.”

Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-8-13 – Alex Bartlett of The Friarhood

“Both the Missions and the TinCaps played in must win games today, and both teams rose to the occasion and collected victories. Hunter Renfroe was an offensive force for Fort Wayne while the Missions’ starter, Josh Geer, limited the Hooks’ offense to 2 runs over 6 quality innings.”
