Found September 13, 2013 on Friarhood:
A rain delay may have ultimately done in the Padres last night as they dropped the final game of the series in Philadelphia. The game started 55 minutes later than scheduled and Tyson Ross did not look like himself afterwards. He has been stellar of late putting up nine consecutive quality starts and was looking for his tenth when he couldn’t make it out of the first inning. The bullpen then came in and the Phillies had their way taking the lead and the game. It’s on to Atlanta now as Ian Kennedy takes on David Hale at 4:30 PST. Ross can’t find rhythm after rain delays start – Padres.com “The Phillies used a six-run first inning Thursday night to put the Padres away early during a 10-5 victory before a crowd of 29,986 at Citizens Bank Park.” Hoffman to work with pitchers full time in new role – Padres.com “This newly created role will see him working with pitchers at the Double-A, Triple-A and big league levels with an eye on communication and preparing younger pitchers for what it ...

Padres rally to defeat Braves 4-3

Chase Headley didn’t want to talk much about his homer that tied it. Instead he looked across the visiting clubhouse at Turner Field as Logan Forsythe came out of the training room. “That is one tough injury” Headley said of the plantar fasciitis that has again struck Forsythe. “What can you do for it? You can’t treat it. All you can do is ride it out. And it’s painful...
