Found May 15, 2012 on Friarhood:
After losing in a disheartening fashion in game one, the Padres bounced back with a strong performance by Anthony Bass to take game two against the Nationals. The Padres got a big game out of backup catcher John Baker who went 3-4 with three RBIs. Will Venable also went 4-5, raising his average to .280 in Tuesday’s victory.The Padres will head home to San Diego for a brief two-game series against the Dodgers before they host the Angels starting with Friday’s retro night where they will don their 1978 home uniforms.

Suppan thriving, happy to be back in majors

Jeff Suppan says he is concentrating on the now and not caught up in the resurrection of his career. Right. "He's relishing every moment," Padres manager Bud Black said of Suppan Sunday afternoon after the 37-year-old right-hander suffered the first loss in his impressive comeback. After three starts with the Padres, Suppan is 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA. He dropped a 3...

Padres' Bass gets results by throwing fewer pitches

Padres right-hander Anthony Bass outdueled Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday at Nationals Park to continue his evolution as a starting pitcher. Not only did the Padres defeat Strasburg with the bat, but Bass outpitched the former San Diego State All-American, allowing one run -- Bryce Harper's second major league homer in as many game -- on five hits in his second eight-inning effort...

Padres reinstate Stauffer from disabled list

The San Diego Padres reinstated pitcher Tim Stauffer from the disabled list, clearing the way for the 29-year old pitcher to make his season debut Monday night against the Washington Nationals.

Bass evolution continues in win vs. Strasburg

Daily Friar 5.16.12

Well the Padres didn't get swept in a series, and they didn't lose it either. They in fact split the two game series against the Nationals after a commanding win yesterday. Remember a few years ago when the Rockies had their "Dragon Slayer" Josh Fogg? He could beat any all star pitcher on any given night. That's how I feel the Padres are right now. We beat Halladay...

Daily Friar 5.14.12

Once again the Padres had a chance to take a series during the rubber game. And once again the team failed to do so. Also, stop me if you've heard this before, the pitching was outstanding but the offense couldn't score enough runs. I'm surprised the Padres even have a team. We can attract pitchers to the team because of Petco. But why would a star pitcher want to stay...

MadFriars' Farm Report May 14

Logan Forsythe and Jonathan Galvez see their first live action of the year. Possibly just as exciting was the combined efforts of the three starters in the three minor league games. Jorge Reyes, Keyvius Sampson, and Adys Portillo combined for 19 IP, 12 H, 1 ER, 8 BB, 14 K. Although, sadly, only one got the win.

MadFriars’ Interview: Brad Brach

WASHINGTON DC: Brad Brach, 26, was taken in the forty-second round of the 2008 draft by the San Diego Padres after a four year career at Monmouth College in New Jersey, a Division III school.

Daily Friar 5.15.12

Stop me if I have said this before: The Padres lost again last night. The offense picked it up, but it was the pitching that failed them this time. More offense is what we're supposed to look forward to when we hit the road. And last night with 5 runs the offense was there. But the pitching staff gave up 3 homeruns. They are playing right now facing Stephen Strasburg. We'...

Padres 6, Nationals 1

Stephen Strasburg left after only four innings Tuesday, matching the second-shortest appearance of his 25-start career, and San Diego's Will Venable had four hits, while John Baker delivered three hits and three RBIs, leading the Padres to a 6-1 victory over the Washington Nationals. Anthony Bass (2-4) - making his 10th start in the majors - tied his longest outing by going...

Padres 4, Dodgers 2

Richard and two relievers combined on a five-hitter as the Padres beat L.A. for only the second time in eight games this season. The...

The First of Many

I saw Bryce Harper’s first MLB home run live. He said to Tim Stauffer “I hope you’re ready to fly, because you’re leaving the yard with me,” and then hit a majestic gun-shot blast over the center field wall. It was everything you would have pictured the kid’s first home run to be. If you missed it, it’s okay. It’s captured forever here for you to enjoy. And I wouldn’t...
