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 sat in the stands to watch the ball sail over the wall, but in the end he had to watch his son take the loss. The good news is that Ryan Braun was kept quiet in the RBI department, which keeps him one back of Chase Headley. Two more games remain as this race comes down to the wire.

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...

San Diego Padres: Chase Headley wins National League RBI crown

In what I think is one of the more incredible statistical feats in recent memory, San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley won the National League RBI crown on Wednesday night. While Miguel Cabrera wrapping up baseball’s first Triple Crown since 1967 will certainly grab the headlines, Headley’s accomplishment was almost equally impressive.Headley finished the season with...

Padres Complete Successful Season With Exciting Comeback Win.

In a microcosm of their season, the Padres fell behind the Brewers by six runs only to score seven unanswered to win their final game of 2012 7-6. Though they already lost the series with two close losses on Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday’s win gave the Padres plenty of reason to celebrate. Two days after being named National League Player of the Month, Chase Headley knocked in...

Daily Friar 10.1.12

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 7, Brewers 6

Chase Headley knew he couldn't afford to lose focus in his chase of the NL RBI title - especially with Ryan Braun chasing him. Headley drove in two runs, finishing the season with a league-leading 115 RBIs, and the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6 on Wednesday night. ''It was on my mind, but you couldn't think about it too much,'' Headley...

Daily Friar 10.3.12

One swing of the bat made all the difference in the game yesterday against the Brewers. Anthony Bass had a great outing minus the one miscue that happened to be a grand slam of the bat of Martin Maldonado. That happened in the third inning, which gave the Padres a ton of chances to score four runs of their own at least to tie the game up. But the offense couldn’t do that, and for...

Deflated Brewers begin season's final series

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)...
