Found June 19, 2012 on Fox Sports San Diego:
Jason Marquis reached a milestone Monday night at Petco Park. With his fourth strikeout of the game, Marquis reached 1,000 strikeouts in his career. And he kept going, finishing with 10 strikeouts against the Texas Rangers. Marquis became the first Padres pitcher to record 10 strikeouts this season. The last one to do it was left-hander Wade LeBlanc, who struck out 10 Dodgers last Sept. 23. It was also just the second 10-strikeout game of Marquis' career. He struck out a career-high 13 while pitching for the Atlanta Braves on Aug. 3, 2001 in Montreal. The 10 strikeouts aside, the most notable statistic to Marquis' third start as a Padre was the pair of two-out, back-to-back walks he issued in the first resulting in the Rangers' two runs in their 2-1 victory over the Padres at Petco Park. Both runs scored on David Murphy's two-run single. Marquis allowed two runs on five hits and three walks over seven innings. Marquis is 1-2 with a 1.86 earned run average in hi...

Hundley's true value is behind the plate

Although Nick Hundley continues to struggle at the plate, San Diego Padres left-handed starter Clayton Richard says his importance behind the plate cannot be measured in hits. "Nick did the best job handling me today since we've been together," Richard said Sunday after shutting out the Oakland A's on five hits and two walks over 7 23 innings in a 2-1 Padres victory...

Daily Friar 6.19.12

Oh Padres, how you frustrate me so. When your pitcher can go into the seventh inning and strike out ten guys you expect to be in a position to win the game. This was the case last night, minus the winning part of it. Again the Padres' horrendous RISP numbers continue to build. 1-9 again last night, which is a .111 average just for the night. This trend needs to stop. This isn...

Quentin open to staying with Padres

Carlos Quentin would like to hear what the still undetermined new owners of the Padres have in mind before he is moved out of San Diego. Right now, the speculation in baseball is that the Padres' left fielder will have a new home before the trade deadline. But Quentin said on Tuesday afternoon that he wouldn't mind remaining a Padre -- this season and beyond. "...

Ranger Danger, Ranger Danger! San Diego Swept by Baseball's Best!

Baseball’s best offense was just too much for the Padres as the Rangers completed three straight wins over the Friars in Petco Park. After sweeping Seattle, San Diego has lost five of six games heading into this weekend’s interleague finale hosting Seattle. The Friars need just one win to bring back the coveted Vedder Cup to San Diego where it belongs. Below is a game by game...

Padres' Bass exits with inflamed shoulder

The San Diego Padres might have lost another starting pitcher Wednesday. Right-hander Anthony Bass departed his start against the Texas Rangers after five solid innings and 60 pitches with an inflamed right shoulder. The severity of Bass' injury was unknown, and the pitcher will meet with team physicians Thursday, although no MRI is planned. "Hopefully, this is just...

Daily Friar 6.18.12

The Padres did what they needed to do yesterday to get the win. Even though the bullpen tried giving the game away again in the end. The last thing you want to do after getting your first sweep of the season is to get swept in the next series. The Padres were on route to do just that, but were able to take one game from the A's. Clayton Richard was outstanding yesterday, and...

MadFriars' Farm Report June 18

We knew Andrew Cashner could be dominate. If Cashner can continue to put up numbers like he did today (5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K), he will be back in San Diego in the next few weeks. The Ems also took their 1st series of the year.

Hamren proud of Sweden despite bowing out

Sweden coach Erik Hamren was happy with his side’s efforts during Euro 2012, despite crashing out of the tournament at...

Darvish (9-4), who struck out eight and walked three, leads all big league rookies with nine victories. He pitched for Japan at Petco Park in the 2009 World Baseball Classic...
