Tim Stauffer makes another rehab start with the Storm, but the Storm’s offense struggles in a 5-1 loss. Jace Peterson, and Mike Gallic contribute greatly to a 7-3 win for Fort Wayne, and the entire Eugene offense had a productive night as they blow out the Bears 12-4.Hitting Prospect of the Day: Jace Peterson/Mike Gallic Pitching Prospect of the Day: Frank GarcesTucson Padres: PPDSan Antonio Missions: DNPLake Elsinore Storm 1, Inland Empire 66ers 5Chris Bisson-SS: 2-4, Run scoredCory Spangenberg-2B: 1-4, KTommy Medica-DH: 1-3, 2b, RBI, BB, KCasey McElroy-3B: 0-4, KDonavan Tate-CF: 0-3Tim Stauffer-SP: 1.2 IP, 3H, ER, BB, 2K Matt Lollis-SP: 4.1 IP, 4H, 4ER, 3BB, 5K (L, 0-3)Notes: It was a rough night for the Storm, they could only tally 4 hits all night.

Padres fan catches foul ball while holding baby

A San Diego Padres fan in the front row leaned over the railing and grabbed a foul ball with his bare hand while holding onto his baby during Monday night's game at Petco Park against the Chicago Cubs. It happened in the top of the second inning on a foul grounder down the third base side by Cubs batter Welington Castillo. The baby was never in danger as the fan held onto...

Padres Blank Cubbies Twice In Three Game Sweep at Petco.

The Padres welcomed in Jed Hoyer and his Chicago Cubs to Petco Park this weekend and thanked them like any host should; with a three game sweep capped with a shutout on top. The Padres beat the Cubs by 2-0, 7-4, and again 2-0, the latter a five-hit shutout by Clayton Richard. The sweep gave them five wins on this short six-game home stand and 10 wins in their last 12 played at Petco...

Daily Friar 8.7.12

It wasn't but a few days ago that the Padres designated Kip Wells for assignment and recalled Eric Stults. As of last night, I think the move has really paid off. Stults, along with the bullpen, shut down the Cubs and en route to a 2-0 win for the Padres. Anthony Rizzo made his return to the Petco for the first time since being traded, and he did exactly what he did while he...

MadFriars' Player of the Month: July

In Tucson Jedd Gyorko continues to produce and Nate Freiman is nothing but steady in San Antonio. Tommy Medica is opening some eyes for the Storm and Kyle Gaedele is starting to show some of the tools that got him drafted. In short-season ball some late round draft picks are opening some eyes.

Daily Friar 8.8.12

That game was pretty fun to watch last night, but so has most Padres baseball as of late. What I really liked though was that we were hitting with runners in scoring position again, which is always a nice asset to have during any game. The team went 4-10 last night with RISP, which is a respectable number compared to their season average. The only nervous part to the game was in...

Daily Friar 8.9.12

If only these Padres were playing the same way at the beginning of the season, then we could be looking at a potential playoff run. Unfortunately though, they dug a huge hole that they won't be able to get themselves out of. They did, however, return the favor to the Cubs from back in May. The Cubs swept us in Wrigley, and the Padres did just that in the latest series here at...

Padres 7, Cubs 4
