Padres season series sweeps

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Padres are coming off a dreadful series where they were swept by the Tampa Bay Rays. Due to interleague play being what it is, the Padres won't have a chance to redeem themselves this year. So it's official, they've been swept in the season series. Currently the only other team that the Padres have played so far and have been swept by in 2013 is the Colorado Rockies who have the Pads 0-6.

In this issue of the Gaslamp Ballmanac we'll look at all the times the Padres have been swept in a season series as well as the times they did the sweeping.

I asked Dex this trivia question: How many times have the Padres been swept in a season series?

He answered eleven. He guessed it exactly. Obviously interleague play played a part in all but three of those.

The Padres can't blame interleague play though for their performance against the 1994 Montreal Expos. That was a team that many thought would have won the World Series if not for the player's strike. The Expos were 74-40 when the season ended on August 11th. The Padres didn't have any more games scheduled against the Expos that year, so they can't blame the strike either.

The Padres have swept their opponent in a season series only six times. Interestingly enough if you disregard the interleague games (in which the Padres are notoriously awful) they've swept three teams. The same number they've been swept by, without counting AL teams.

I remember that year against the Cubs. That was fun to taunt Chicago fans with season sweep.
