Found June 06, 2012 on D Wizzle's World:
Logan Forsythe had quite a night last night for the San Diego Padres as he helped his team on defense and offense to help beat the San Francisco Giants 6-5 on Monday night.Check out the two videos below of Forsythe's amazing night.In the first video, the second baseman makes a perfect throw from the outfield grass to gun down Angel Pagan at third base. When Joaquin Arias hit the ball to the right side of the field, it looked like Forsythe had no play at first or third base.In the second video, Forsythe comes to bat in the ninth inning with the scored tied 5-5 and hits a dramatic walk-off homer into the second deck in left field to win the game.Your browser does not support iframes.Your browser does not support iframes.

Daily Friar 6.6.12

I'm going on record to say that last night's game was the best of the season so far. Carlos Quentin was tearing it up and was only overshadowed by Logan Forsythe and his heroic walk off home run. Everything seemed to just go right last night. Maybin with the clutch double, Quentin with the two home runs, then Forsythe with his monstrous walk off. And yes you did read that...

Padres activate Street from DL

The San Diego Padres activated right-handed relief pitcher Huston Street from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. Street was placed on the disabled list on May 5 with a strained right lat muscle. In two rehabilitation appearances for Single-A Lake Elsinore, he had a 9.00 ERA, allowing one hit (a home run) and one walk while striking out one. With the Padres...

Velocity Decline and Pitcher Attrition by Age

On May 28, the Twins released 33-year-old starter Jason Marquis. Considering how bad Twins pitchers have been this season, Marquis’ numbers stood out as being even worse. In seven starts, Marquis posted a 8.47 ERA and a 7.25 FIP, numbers driven largely by a 7.5% strikeout rate, a 27.3% HR/FB and a sky-high .352 BABIP against. There was some speculation that, since Marquis has...

Second Freak Injury Recharges Affeldt’s Season

Jeremy Affeldt is left-handed relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants. Some, including me, have referred to him as a LOOGY (Lefty One-Out GuY) over the years, but that’s not entirely the case. This is Affeldt’s fourth season with the Giants, his eleventh overall in the majors. The only season with the Giants in which he’s been more effective against left-handed batters...

Forget about bobbleheads. Let’s get crunk in Tucson.

The Triple-A Tucson Padres, whose attendance this year has been a little slow, have come up with a promotion that’s either genius or reckless, depending on your point of view. If you happen to live in a large house with Greek letters on the front, you probably think the Kino Krawl is super awesome. The deal: you buy a ticket for Friday’s game (cost: $15) and in addition to admission...

MadFriars' Farm Report June 6

Cory Spangenberg hit his 1st HR of the year, and Rymer Liriano had 4 hits... and yet the Storm still managed to lose. Not the best day to be a pitcher in the Padres' system

MadFriars' Farm Report June 5

It takes one amazing rally to have Yasmani Grandal score Jedd Gyorko on a home run, THE SAME INNING that Jedd Gyorko hit a grandslam! Way to go T-Pads

Lincecum just can't avoid that one bad inning

This one-bad-inning stuff has got to end. Tim Lincecum had one bad inning Tuesday night. This is not a recording. He gave up four runs in the second inning. Otherwise, he retired 15 of 16 batters he faced. He struck out eight. Walked one. The second inning killed him. One bad inning. Again. "I'm finally crawling out of it, making the right push in the right direction...

Witness ID's Stow beating defendants

A woman who saw part of a brutal attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium has made the first eyewitness identification in court of two defendants charged in the case. Mary Dolores Donely was at the 2011 Opening Day game with family members. She recalled Thursday that she heard profanity and a scuffle before she and her husband ran toward the trouble. She testified...

Postgame Wrap: P-P-P-Petco Power!

Bye, bye baby. Coming into the series the Giants had a season total of 31 home runs, good enough for 29th in the league. 30Th? The Padres, of course, with 30. So color me surprised when the Giants go to Petco and score 5,6, and 8 runs on 13, 11, 15 hits, respectively. And a diminutive non-roster spring training invitee who had two home runs in 836 career plate appearances has two...

Giants 6, Padres 5

Gregor Blanco homered and scored twice and Madison Bumgarner prevailed in a matchup of lefties as the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 on Wednesday. The Giants have won eight of 10 overall and 14 of their last 19 against the Padres, who have the worst record in the majors. Bumgarner (7-4) won his second straight start while Clayton Richard (2-7) lost for the second...

Friars Fail to Capitalize on San Francisco's Follies, Lose Series.

The Padres and the Giants played three exciting games, with each team getting 6-5 wins, but the Padres lack of timely hitting cost them in the error-riddled rubber game on Thursday afternoon. The Padres went an awful 2-19 with runners in scoring position, leaving 12 on base. They loaded the bases without scoring three different innings. They will fly out to Wisconsin to begin a...
