And that concludes Padres home games for 2012. It would have been nice to end the homestand on a high note, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Huston Street has not looked the same since coming back from the calf injury, and that was extremely apparent yesterday. He hadn't given up a home run all season until yesterday when he gave up two. This ultimately doomed the Padres and their chance to take a series from the Giants. Now we are off to a meaningless series in Milwaukee. Meaningless in terms of the standings, but there is one thing to watch. The first is the RBI race between Chase Headley and Ryan Braun. The Padres pitchers have a chance to help Headley out and make sure he wins that title. I don't know how the schedule makers choose the games, but it was as if they expected the Padres to be out of it this year. The other 4 NL West teams are facing each other and the Padres are on the outside looking in. It's a shame. Here are your Padres links for today:Sub...

Padres' Street endures first blown save of season

San Diego Padres right-handed closer Huston Street said he's not one to think much about good or bad outings. "In my opinion, it is a waste of time to focus on the past for more than a few minutes," said Street. "Focus on what you can do moving forward." That might be an excellent philosophy given what happened in the ninth inning Sunday at Petco Park...

Padres Drop Final Home Game And Series With Blown Save Against Rival Giants.

The Padres lost their last home game of the year on Sunday, also losing their fourth consecutive series as their season comes to a close. Huston Streets first blown save of the season ended with their sixth loss in the last 10 games. The Giants beat the Padres 3-1 on Friday before the Padres answered back with a convincing 7-3 win on Saturday. But Huston Street surrendered both a...

Daily Friar 9.30.12

Maybe there is life in the Padres offense after all. After a week of scoring no more than 4 runs in a game, the Padres put up 7 last night on the heels of their best run producer. Chase Headley hit his 30th home run of the year and pushed his RBI total up to 112, which ties him with Ryan Braun for the NL lead. Those two have gone back and forth all month and will most likely come...

Video: Cameron Maybin leaps high over the wall to rob homer

Saturday brought us yet another candidate for catch of the year as San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin hauled in a beauty. The play occurred in the very first inning of the Padres home game against the San Francisco Giants. With two outs, Giants outfielder Xavier Nady crushes a drive high and deep toward the center-field wall. That's when Maybin rises up and robs Nady...

Daily Friar 10.2.12

Last night's game was interesting to say the least. Clayton Richard looked pretty decent on the mound, minus the home runs he gave up. But they are playing in Milwaukee and any fly ball in that place will go out it seems. This includes the deep fly ball that Clayton Richard sent over the right field wall for his first career home run. It was bitter sweet in the end as his father...

Headley wins consecutive NL Player of the Month honors

It will be interesting to see where Chase Headley finishes in the National League Most Valuable Player voting. The San Diego Padres third baseman won't win the award, but he should get votes. The question is how many. On Tuesday, Headley was selected the National League Player of the Month for September. He was also the NL Player of the Month for August. Over the past two...

Braun looks to top Headley in NL RBI lead

Neither Chase Headley nor Ryan Braun drove in a run to begin this season-ending showdown of the NL's RBI leaders. There are two games left to decide which of these players will lead the league in that category as the visiting San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers continue their series Tuesday night. Any intrigue for this set between Milwaukee (82-78) and San Diego (75-85)...

Padres 7, Giants 3

Chase Headley hit his 30th home run and had three RBIs to tie Ryan Braun for the NL lead with 112 and the San Diego Padres beat Buster Posey and the NL West champion San Francisco Giants 7-3 on Saturday night. Posey, who started at catcher a night after being hit in the throat with a wild pitch, went 2 for 2 with a to raise his average to .337 and increase his lead in the NL batting...

Giants 7, Padres 5

Pinch hitter Xavier Nady homered off Huston Street to tie the game with one out in the ninth and Hunter Spence hit a go-ahead, two-run shot as the San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the San Diego Padres 7-5 Sunday. The stunning rally got Tim Lincecum off the hook for the loss, but the righty still had his second straight shaky start for the NL West champion Giants. Lincecum allowed...
