A look at Padres extra-inning game data throughout history.

2013 sets new record for extra-innings games, Padres responsible for 15 of them

On Tuesday night while we were waiting for Mike Dee to arrive in his suite, Ish told me that there was news breaking. Twenty-thirteen had just claimed the record for most extra-innings games in a season... ever!  The former record was held by 2011 when 237 games went past 9 innings.

2013 season sets new extra-innings record | MLB.com: News

With the Blue Jays and Orioles going 10 innings on Tuesday, a new record of 238 extra-inning games was set, surpassing the all-time high of 237 set in 2011, then the D-backs and Padres extended that record by one. After their 12-inning, 2-1 win, the D-backs have played 78 extra innings this year, the most since 1920.

I was reminded of this yesterday when Alexi Amarista and the Padres beat the Diamondbacks in extra frames.

As Tuesday night proved, the undisputed kings of extra frames this season in the National League have been the D-backs, who not only have played more long ones than anyone else, but they've had the most success in terms of wins. At 17-7, their .708 winning percentage is second only to the Indians' .833 (10-2).

Now the Diamondbacks are 17-8.

The 2013 Diamondbacks' 78 extra-innings are butt load, but I wondered how many the Padres had tallied so far.  I decided to compute some data for Padres extra-inning games throughout their entire history.

Here's some interesting tidbits:

  • 2000 and 1996 had the most extra-innings games with 24 each.
  • 1976 and 2001 had the least extra-innings games with 9 each
  • 1972 had the most extra-innings with 65.
  • 1999 and 2004 had the least extra-innings with 12.
  • 2001 had the best winning percentage for extra-innings games with 88.89% (8-1)
  • 2011 had the worst winning percentage for extra-innings games with 25% (4-12)
  • 2008 had the game with the most innings with 22.
  • The shortest extra-inning game for every year was 10 innings.
