Found September 26, 2013 on Padres Public:
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 keep getting further and further away from a Top 10 draft pick and currently sit in the #13 spot. Oh yeah, they won again last night, 12-2, backed by 3 homers from Chris Robinson, Jedd Gyorko and Tommy Medica. On the mound Ian Kennedy dominated his former team, throwing 7 IP, striking out 7 (1 walk) and only allowed 2 runs. The Friars play thier final home game of the 2013 season today at 3:40PM as Robbie Erlin takes on Trevor Cahill.

Andrew Cashner and a Plea to Mike Dee
