Padres Editorial: What to do with Ian Kennedy?

The San Diego Padres 2016 rotation has a lot of question marks around it heading into the off-season and not a lot of easy choices. We know that it will include James Shields. After that we may not know much. While I would hope that it would once again include Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross, […] Padres Editorial: What to do with Ian Kennedy? - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers 5, Padres 0: Is the season over yet?

If tonight was any indication of how the last four games of the season will go, I'm all for fast forwarding to Monday and getting on with the offseason. Justin Upton banged his head into a wall and left the game with a neck strain. Andrew Cashner gave up five runs in one inning. The offense got shut out again. The only bright spot of the evening was that Rocky Gale picked up his first big league hit. Cashner did okay for the first five innings, but his shutout ended with a disastrous sixth inning. Adam Lind and Khris Davis led off with back-to-back singles, and then Shane Peterson drew a...

Padres 5, Giants 4: Birthday boys walk off

Tonight's ballgame started as a pitchers duel, then turned into a stressful back-and-forth affair, before wrapping up with a walkoff bookended by birthday boys Matt Kemp and Jedd Gyorko. The two combined to go 6-for-10 with 3 runs and an RBI. Andrew Cashner got off to a rough start, walking Angel Pagan and Alejandro de Aza to start the game. He retired the next two batters, but a single from Brandon Crawford drove them home. Cash shut the Giants down after that, going five more innings and allowing just one more hit and three more walks. That kept the Padres in the game for their first...

SD 4, ARI 3: Friars ride Kemp's 3-run bopper to victory

Cashner only gave up 3 runs and the Padres scored more than those 3! After a sloppy sweep in San Fran, the Padres made an effort to finish out the season strong against a different division opponent in their house. Tonight the Pads took the final series they had in Chase field in a close 4-3 final. They outscored the Snakes 18-12, and saw some above-average pitching from our starters. Andrew Cashner has been somewhat of a mystery this season. With an ERA well over 4, his September has not been something to write home about. Today wasn't much of a gem from Cash, but it was enough to get the...

Game 147 Preview: 09/16 Padres @ Diamondbacks

Andrew Cashner and the Padres go for the series win in the finale at Chase Field. The bullpen continued its struggles last night and a great outing by Tyson Ross went to waste in the Padres' loss to the Diamondbacks. Andrew Cashner has had his share of struggles this season too, but hopefully he can put up a strong performance tonight to help San Diego take the rubber game of the series. Cashner's most recent start was one of his worst of the season. He gave up five earned runs and only lasted 4 2/3 innings against the Giants. Where he did succeed, and where he's succeeded for much of the...

SD 1, SF 9: First game of the road trip goes poorly

Not a lot of hits, not a lot of runs. Not a lot of win. Coming off a 3-11 homestand, the Padres need something big to push out of the month and clear the September schedule in a positive way. They started their 9-game road trip today in AT&T Park against the Giants. But they didn't start off on a good foot. The birthday boy Andrew Cashner didn't have much of a birthday bash. Instead, he was bashed for 9 hits and 5 earned runs, despite striking out a good 7. He lasted 4 innings and two-thirds, and Odrisamer Despaigne didn't do much to cover up the wound with his relief effort. Instead, Ody...

Game 142 Preview: 09/11 Padres @ Giants

Andrew Cashner gets the ball against San Francisco. The Padres, fresh off a four-game split against the Rockies, will take on another NL West foe this weekend as they hit the road against the Giants. First up in the series will be Andrew Cashner, who will face off against former Friar Jake Peavy. Cashner is 0-2 in his last three starts, giving up nine runs on 22 hits through 16 2/3 total innings in that stretch. He lost his only previous outing this season against the Giants, pitching six innings and allowing six runs (four earned) on seven hits, including a home run. His all-time record...
