Padres pitchers stingy with runs in first 19 games

Denis Poroy

Here's another interesting tweet, this one from Geoff Young of Ducksnorts.

As Geoff says, in 19 games the Padres pitching staff has only allowed 60 runs.  They did that once before in 1972, but only once eclipsed that total when they allowed 58 in 1985.

Also notice that the 2014 Padres are tied for 6th worst with the least number of runs scored (53).  If only the offense and defense could click at the same time.
