Good, Bad, and Ugly v. Giants 4/19/13
Giants 3- Padres 2
- WP: S. Casilla (2-1)
- LP: L. Gregerson (1-2)
- HR: Headley (1)
Edinson Volquez – 6IP, 8H, 2ER, 3BB, 3K. Not a stellar night, but he was getting squeezed and still found a way to escape. His best outing of the year.
Chris Denorfia – 2-4, two doubles, run scored. Deno has been great with Maybin out. The defense is obviously not the same, but he is hitting .375/.434/.563
Jesus Guzman – 2-4, double. Guzman has raised his average 100 points this week, while also proving he’s an AL player with his glove.
Chase Headley – 1-3, HR, 2RBI. All the talk of how the Padres missed Headley’s intangibles is only adding fuel to the fire for those that believe the Padres should keep him long term.
#friarsidechat – We tried out a new hashtag for those that tweet about the Padres game. We had 34 tweeps use the hashtag during the game. Not bad for a first night.
Yonder Alonso – 0-4 3K. I realize the Padres are limited with injuries, but playing Guzman at 1B, and Amarista in the OF may have made a difference tonight. No shame in a day off vs. tough lefties.
Jedd Gyorko – 0-3 2K. We are 16-games into this young season and the rookie is now hitting .224. I still think he will come on and be a ROY candidate, but it appears giving up 2019, to have Gyorko for one month in 2013 is just another blunder from the front office.
Strikeouts – 14 strikeouts for the friars tonight. In a pitchers park like AT&T, you have to put the ball in play. It’s not as though you are in Colorado and you are swinging for the fences.
