Best and Worst Padres Home Openers

Stephen Dunn

Remember when the Padres beat the Braves 17-2 in their 2010 home opener? Oh man, that was so good. If I remember correctly they also opened up a can of whoop-ass in the 4th. Here, let me check:


Final - 4.12.2010 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Atlanta Braves 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 2 4 1
San Diego Padres 0 1 0 10 3 0 3 0 X 17 19 0
WP: Kevin Correia (1 - 1)
LP: Jair Jurrjens (0 - 1)

Yep, those were some good times. That was probably one of my top 10 favorite games I've attended. I also remember it started raining pretty hard during the National Anthem and the temperature seemed to fluctuate back and forth between being really hot and really cold. That's the only part that sucked.

Here's the outcomes of all the Padres home openers over the years.
