10 Shortest Games in Petco Park History

Denis Poroy

On Saturday Eric Stults and the Padres beat the Nationals in 2 hours and 1 minute. I went to see Star Trek Into Darkness instead, thinking I'd catch the end of the game after the movie. It was not to be. Huston Street had already Chekov'd another save by the time the 2 hour and 12 minute movie was over. The Padres game was the 3rd shortest game in Petco Park history.

Notice in the list below that the Padres are undefeated at home in their 10 shortest games. The Padres are actually 110-36 when a game at Petco Park is 2:30 or shorter. As Jerry Coleman said yesterday on the broadcast, this mostly speaks to the fact that pitching changes take about 15 minutes. When a starting pitcher goes deep into the game, it usually results in a win.

Also notice Greg Maddux and Brian Lawrence both have a pair of wins in the top 10.
