Padres get their 70th win, finally.

Justin K. Aller

Some teams never win 70 games in a season.  Thirty Padres teams have though.  If you're looking at Padres history and comparing those teams who have won at least 70 then you'll notice that the 2013 team is a late bloomer of sorts.  They didn't reach the milestone in July like the 1998 team or August like the rest of the good teams or even early September like the mediocre teams, but they did accomplish something.

Now with 12 games left it's all about getting to 80.  No way that happens, but it's something to shoot for.
