Donn Roach had the sinkerball working as he induced 11 groundouts, and only allowed 2 runs over 6+ quality innings. Relievers Leonel Campos and Jeremy McBryde both suffered blown saves, but the Missions persevered and won due to an error from the Hooks centerfielder. The Missions’ RISP numbers still were not ideal (2-for-8) but they scored 7 runs a...

Pitching for Next Year: Andrew Cashner

Headley blast helps send Padres past Rockies

His season-long slump alive and well in September Chase Headley still can’t put a finger on one thing that’s dogged throughout this frustrating campaign.

He knows.” Saturday night all facets of Gyorko’s game came into play as the Padres...

Daily Friar 9.8.13

It was a low scoring affair last night as the Padres played to their strengths and were able to beat the Rockies 2-1.
