Despite a great start from Josh Spence, Tucson melts down in the 9th inning and loses 4-3. San Antonio and Lake Elsinore lose by a combined 18 runs. They both endured struggling offenses (2 combined runs) and poor pitching performances. Frank Garces turned in a great start, and Jankowski extended his hitting streak to 15 games, but Fort Wayne loses 5-3.Hitting Prospect of the Day: Travis Jankowski/Kyle GaedelePitching Prospect of the Day: Frank GarcesTucson Padres 3, Reno Aces 4Daniel Robertson-CF: 2-5Andy Parrino-SS: 1-5, K, Run scoredJedd Gyorko-2B: 2-4, BB, K, Run scoredVince Belnome-2B: 1-4, RBISawyer Carroll-RF: 0-4, BBJosh Spence-SP: 6.0 IP, 2H, 3BB, 3K Brad Boxberger-RP: 1.0 IP, 2H, 2KNotes: Josh Spence has been very effective since transitioning to a starting pitcher.

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-31-12

Andrew Cashner makes his 3rd rehab start as the T-Pads lose to the Aces 7-2. Nathan Freiman continues to hit the ball extremely well as he leads the Missions to a 4-2 victory over the RockHounds. Travis Jankowski extends his hitting streak to 14 games as the TinCaps dominate the Whitecaps and win 7-0. Despite a home run from Jeremy Baltz, Eugene loses to the Indians 3-1. Hitting...

Padres are proof that hitting is contagious

The San Diego Padres have three of the hottest hitters in the major leagues -- third baseman Chase Headley and outfielders Will Venable and Cameron Maybin. Headley was 4-for-5 Sunday at Colorado with his 23rd homer and a career-high six RBI in the Padres' 11-10 loss. The six RBI were two shy of the Padres' single-game record and the most by a Padre since Adrian Gonzalez...

Players of the Month - August

Hitter of the month: 3B – Chase Headley August totals: 306/345/611 – 10 HR, 31 RBI, 20 R No brainer. Easily the best single month turned in by a Padres third baseman since Phil Nevin was manning the position in Mission Valley. In August, Chase pushed his 2012 season from “nice” to “breakthrough”. Not sure if one month can change the course of an offseason, but it has...

Daily Friar 9.3.12

The unpredictability of Coors Field continued yesterday. You never know who is going to win a game in that place. A deep fly ball that would be a routine out in Petco just keeps on going in Denver. That was the case last night when Casey Kelly gave up the 7 runs in the third, and Brad Brach gave up the 3 runs in the 7th. Ultimately though the Padres were done in by lack of defense...

Red Hot Padres Cool Down In Colorado, Losing Final Two Games.

All good things must come to end, and the Padres streak of consecutive series won did at three when they dropped the last two games against the Rockies after winning the first. The Padres won a close on Friday, 5-4 before getting blown out 9-1 on Saturday. The Padres retook the lead on Sunday after allowing a seven-run fourth before giving the lead back in the seventh, ultimately...

Daily Friar 9.1.12

I guess when you keep winning every once in a while you want a bit of a challenge. Or so it would appear for the Padres last night. Despite the two home runs that Clayton Richard gave up, and the one that Luke Gregerson gave, the Padres still pulled out the win last night at Coors Field. The decisive run came when Cameron Maybin was able to make it home on an infield single by Chris...

Gasparino named Padres director of scouting

The San Diego Padres named Billy Gasparino director of scouting, promoting him from his position as national crosschecker, the club announced Saturday. Gasparino, 35, joined the Padres as a national crosschecker in 2010 after serving in the same role for the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He interned for the Cleveland Indians in 2003 and became an area scout for the Blue Jays in...

Padres 5, Rockies 4

Clayton Richard pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Carlos Quentin homered and the surging San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 on Friday night. Cameron Maybin had three hits for the Padres, who have won two straight and 10 of 11. Jordan Pacheco, Wilin Rosario and Andrew Brown homered for Colorado, which has dropped two straight. Richard (12-12) had his sixth...

Daily Friar 9.2.12

I guess if you’re going to lose a game after winning a bunch, then you might as well lose big. Edinson Volquez had a rough night to say the least, and for once Jhoulys Chacin had a very good outing. In fact, the Padres made the Rockies look like a great time last night. Nine runs is a lot to overcome even if they only needed two to pull off the victory. The Padres had chances...

Nelson lifts Rockies past Padres

Chris Nelson wasn't sure he had hit the ball hard enough for a homer. When he saw the saw ball disappear over the fence as he rounded first base, out came a celebratory fist pump, and a day marked by frustration at the plate and in the field turned noticeably bright. Nelson had his go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning, and the Colorado Rockies overcame a career...

Rockies 11, Padres 10

Chris Nelson had a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning and the Colorado Rockies overcame a career-best six RBIs by Chase Headley to beat the San Diego Padres 11-10 on Sunday. Tyler Colvin and Ramon Hernandez also homered and Dexter Fowler had three hits and two RBIs to help the Rockies win two of three to snap the Padres' string of three consecutive series victories...

Madfriars' Daily Farm Report: August 31

The TinCaps locked up a playoff spot and still have a chance to claim the second-half division title, but both Eugene and Lake Elsinore were eliminated from the playoffs Friday night. The Padres got good news from Andrew Cashner's final rehab start in Tucson and San Antonio showed some spirit as they play out the season.

Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-30-12

Jedd Gyorko goes hitless, but the T-Pads still pull out the victory and beat the Bees 3-1. Adys Portillo had a great start as the Missions barely beat the RockHounds 3-2. Justin Miller and Casey McElroy both contribute offensively, but can’t stop the Storm from getting rocked 10-3. It was a hot night offensively for the TinCaps as Jankowski increased his hit streak to 13 and Travis...
