The Padres' most lopsided losses

Dustin Bradford

The Padres' 14-2 loss last night was lopsided, but it could have been worse if not for Jedd Gyorko's 9th inning solo shot.  I looked up the worst lopsided losses in Padres history and thought you might also be interested.

Three times the Padres lost by 19 runs.  I think I vaguely remember the most recent in 2005, which was also against and in Colorado, just like last night's.  Here was Dex's blog post after the game where he describes it as "the biggest jock punch in the history of jock punches".  Those Gaslamp Ballers in the Game Thread took it all in stride.  We were super chill back then.

Andy Benes, Jake Peavy and Tim Stauffer all had three lopsided losses of 12 or more runs.  Current broadcaster Mark Grant had one.

The only other thing that I'm noticing right now is that the last loss of 12 runs or more, before last night, wasn't that long ago.  In fact it was August 13th, 2011.  Two years ago today!
