Found August 26, 2012 on Friarhood:
The Padres extended their win streak to seven games, sweeping Arizona on the road after sweeping the Pirates at home. The win on Sunday raised their record to 15-9 in August clinching their second straight winning month with four games to go. After never sweeping the Diamondback in Chase Field (formerly Bank One Ballpark) since their inaugural season in 1998, the Friars have now done it twice in 2012. The Padres offense scored at least five runs in all three games, with wins of 5-0, 9-3 and 5-4. Yonder Alonso earned the Friarhood player of the series, getting a pair of hits in each game. He went 6-12, with four runs batted in and a home run. The Padres will head back to San Diego for a quick three game home stand against the Braves before heading to Colorado on Friday. Below is a recap of the weekend sweep of the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Out of the rest of the teams, San Antonio was shutout, Eugene was 2-hit, and Fort Wayne was 4-hit.

Daily Friar 8.26.12

How does it feel to be a fan of one of the hottest teams in baseball right now? I for one love what the Padres have been doing of late on the field, they are executing on offense and the pitching has been superb. Like I said yesterday, one of my biggest fears was that the team wouldn't be able to pitch as well at Chase Field. But both Eric Stults and Clayton Richard have been...

Padres 3, Braves 0

Daily Friar 8.25.12

One of my biggest fears coming into this Arizona series was whether or not the pitching would be able to do its job. Well, if Eric Stults' performance is any indication then the pitching should be just fine. He did outstanding last night in more ways than one. I also figured that the offense would have no trouble scoring runs, but I didn't expect that the number 9 hole would...

Madfriars' Daily Farm Report: August 26

Lake Elsinore Player and Pitcher of the Month: July 2012

Last season we noted the injury of catcher Tommy Medica and the surgery that followed. Since coming back from that injury Medica has mostly been used as a DH/1B as he continued to rehab his shoulder and never gave up on the idea of catching in the future.  Medica has caught one game this season but continues to play most of his games as a DH/1B. Obviously his shoulder has not come...
