On the day Tony Gywnn, #19, Mr. Padre enters the Hall of Fame the San Diego Padres bang out a season high 19 hits. The Padres exploded for 11 runs in the first inning chasing Jason Jennings after just 2/3 innings as they held on 18-11 in earning the split with Houston.
After Monday's off day (much needed after playing 17 straight days) the Friars host the Arizona Diamondbacks who are currently tied atop the NL West .5 games ahead of SD. Tuesday nights game will feature last years NL Cy Young Brandon Webb against Padres Justin Germano.
Needless to say, T. Gwynn is a Friar Forum Friar-of-the-Day everyday. Congrats again on his election to the Hall of Fame and huge thank you to all the great games.
