Padres Fall Short in Extra Innings 4-2 WP: Craig Breslow (1-0) LP: Micah Owings (0-1)Save: JJ Putz (3)Homeruns - ARI: Chris Young (2)   The Good: Edinson Volquez 7IP, 5H, 2ER, 8K, 3BB - Volquez got off to a rocky start and can thank Petco for helping him out along the way.  It wasn't pretty, but Volquez was able to put together a solid outing and give the Padres a chance to win.  Street, Gregerson, Thatcher In relief of Volquez they threw two perfect innings while striking out two. The Bad: Strikeouts Eleven more strikeouts today.  With 47 punch outs, the Padres currently have the second most in the NL.  You can't blame Petco for suppressing offense if the team can't put the ball in play.   Orlando Hudson A leadoff triple that leads to a run in the seventh, follow by the failure to get down a bunt to advance Hundley to second in the ninth.  The Ugly: Cameron Maybin 0-4 3K Jesus Guzman 0-5 RBI 3K Note: We are be giving away a pair of...

Daily Friar 4.12.12

The Padres won for the second time this season yesteday. The pitching was stellar, but the offense (as usual) was not. As a team they are batting under .200. The only bright spot in the offense was Chris Denorfia's homerun in the bottom of the 8th to give the Padres the lead, and ultimately the win. Holding the Dbacks to 1 run is no easy feet, even in Petco, so kudos to the pitching...

Daily Friar 4.11.12

Oh the woes of being a Padres fan. Just when you think the team is still in a game and can do something with their offense they throw it away. The pitching was there last night, the offense wasn't. One of the links below has the numbers on how well this team is hitting right now. Spolier alert: It's not good. They are being patient at the plate adding even more walks last...
