We knew Andrew Cashner could be dominate. If Cashner can continue to put up numbers like he did today (5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K), he will be back in San Diego in the next few weeks. The Ems also took their 1st series of the year.

Hundley's true value is behind the plate

Although Nick Hundley continues to struggle at the plate, San Diego Padres left-handed starter Clayton Richard says his importance behind the plate cannot be measured in hits. "Nick did the best job handling me today since we've been together," Richard said Sunday after shutting out the Oakland A's on five hits and two walks over 7 23 innings in a 2-1 Padres victory...

Quentin open to staying with Padres

Carlos Quentin would like to hear what the still undetermined new owners of the Padres have in mind before he is moved out of San Diego. Right now, the speculation in baseball is that the Padres' left fielder will have a new home before the trade deadline. But Quentin said on Tuesday afternoon that he wouldn't mind remaining a Padre -- this season and beyond. "...

Marquis reaches milestone in Monday's start

Jason Marquis reached a milestone Monday night at Petco Park. With his fourth strikeout of the game, Marquis reached 1,000 strikeouts in his career. And he kept going, finishing with 10 strikeouts against the Texas Rangers. Marquis became the first Padres pitcher to record 10 strikeouts this season. The last one to do it was left-hander Wade LeBlanc, who struck out 10 Dodgers last...

Daily Friar 6.19.12

Oh Padres, how you frustrate me so. When your pitcher can go into the seventh inning and strike out ten guys you expect to be in a position to win the game. This was the case last night, minus the winning part of it. Again the Padres' horrendous RISP numbers continue to build. 1-9 again last night, which is a .111 average just for the night. This trend needs to stop. This isn...

Daily Friar 6.18.12

The Padres did what they needed to do yesterday to get the win. Even though the bullpen tried giving the game away again in the end. The last thing you want to do after getting your first sweep of the season is to get swept in the next series. The Padres were on route to do just that, but were able to take one game from the A's. Clayton Richard was outstanding yesterday, and...

Padres 2, Athletics 1

Clayton Richard pitched into the eighth inning for his second consecutive win and the San Diego Padres beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. Everth Cabrera scored on a groundout in the second and the Padres tacked on an insurance run in the ninth to salvage the finale of their nine-game road trip. San Diego is still 19 games under .500 and last in...

Hamren proud of Sweden despite bowing out

Sweden coach Erik Hamren was happy with his side’s efforts during Euro 2012, despite crashing out of the tournament at...

Padres 2, A's 1

Oakland As' pitcher Bartolo Colon had to leave Sunday's game in the top of the third inning with a strained right oblique, and the A's lost to the San Diego Padres 2-1 in Oakland, ending the A's five-game winning streak. Colon came off the mound to field Alexi Amarista's sacrifice bunt in the third inning, according to the San Jose Mercury-News. He threw wildly...
