Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres won the rubber match of the series with the Yankees, 6-3, making this weekend the most successful regular season series in Padres history. Including the PCL years.*
*Make sure your sarcasm detector is switched on.
Ian Kennedy looked very good in his Padres debut. And Phil Hughes looked like the 2013 edition of Phil Hughes, which is not particularly good.
Monday is an off-day, with the Baltimore Orioles coming to Petco Park. Tuesday, it’s Edinson Volquez wearing his hat at odd angles against the Oriole’s big trade deadline acquisition, Bud Norris, at 7:10pm PDT. And Wednesday, Eric Stults takes the mound versus Miguel Gonzalez at 12:40pm PDT.

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task.
The Padres picked up Ian Kennedy along with series victories against...
With Tyson Ross and Andrew Cashner recently flashing glimpses of the talent they each possess, I’ve noticed a growing swell of optimism as it pertains to the potential future Padres pitching staff. In addition to Ross and Cashner, Padre fans point out the inevitable return from Tommy John surgery of Cory Luebke, Joe Wieland and Casey Kelly as reasons to feel good about the core...
An emotional Everth Cabrera has admitted to taking a banned substance during the spring of 2012 while recovering from a shoulder injury.
The All-Star shortstop, suspended for 50 games earlier Monday, broke down after apologizing to Padres fans, the organization and his teammates.
He didn't take questions after speaking through an interpreter for several minutes.
Most first round draft picks entire athletic careers have been one unmitigated success followed by the next. Little League, high school, college - they have always been the best player on the team, if not the entire league.
But for Hunter Renfroe, the Padres top draft pick and thirteenth overall selection in the 2013 amateur draft, it hasnt always been a smooth ride.
While he had...
Sorry for the absence in the Round-Up, I’ve been out of town for the past few days. Time to catch up! Matt Andriese and Max Fried both had outstanding starts for the T-Pads and the TinCaps, respectively. Lake Elsinore’s pitching staff was completely destroyed; they allowed 26 runs.
Hitting Prospect of the Day: Lee Orr
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Max Fried/Matt Andriese
The San Diego Padres have been without outfielder Carlos Quentin over the past several games as he continues to be hampered by a knee injury. While Quentin was also unable to suit up for Sunday’s weekend finale,
the Padres are hoping to have him back in their starting lineup for today’s series
opener against the Baltimore Orioles, according to Jamal Collier of MLB.com.
Hola, amigos. Did you happen to catch any games this weekend? I did. Some team named the Padres straight embarrassed the most decorated team in American sports two games out of three. It was glorious my friends. A little David v. Goliath to start off the first weekend in August is nice. So here are my five good things from that series.
5. Padres Power!
The Padres won big 7-2 on...
In a tight pitcher’s duel between Matt Harrison and Keyvius Sampson, the Missions prevailed 1-0 due to an RBI from Austin Hedges. Led by Lee Orr, the Storm blew out the 66ers 12-2. The TinCaps split a double-header while Hunter Renfroe recorded 3 hits in the Emeralds’ 6-1 victory.
Hitting Prospect of the Day: Lee Orr
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Keyvius Sampson
Only 3 teams played tonight on the farm and the highlight was easily Zach Eflin’s dominant performance. Eflin was so good that he got the victory even though he was supported by only 4 hits. The AZL Padres were blown out by the AZL Giants while the T-Pads lost a close one 5-4.
Hitting Prospect of the Day: Brandon Allen
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Zach Eflin
Offense was hard to come by for every team in the Padre farm except for the TinCaps. Good pitching, however, was plentiful. Pete Kelich had another successful start for the AZL Padres while Matt Wisler dominated the RoughRiders to earn his 6th victory with San Antonio.
Hitting Prospect of the Day: Luis Domoromo

The San Diego Padres were the latest stop on Mariano Rivera’s farewell tour, and the Yankees closer received another gift to add to his ever-growing collection Friday night.
With Rivera already amassing a chair made out of broken bats, a plane dedicated in his honor and a custom surfboard, the Padres were faced with the tough task of living up to the impressive gifts he’s already...
It’s been a whirlwind week for Ian Kennedy.
Four days after being acquired by the Padres via a trade the right-handed pitcher Sunday afternoon found himself on the mound at Petco Park facing the New York Yankees – the team that had originally drafted him in the first round in 2006.
Kennedy admitted he had “adrenaline and emotion” working for him at the start of the game...
