Tons of Ks but Still Lose

USA TODAY Sports

Last night we saw the K board at Petco Park fill across. By the time, the game ended, the Padres had racked up 17Ks but still lost the game. It got me to wondering how often in the last 15 years has this happened where a team had struck out at least 17 batters and still lost.

It has happened 52 times since 1999. Sadly, the Padres have accounted for 6 of the 52 times with the most recent time being a 6-5 loss to the Giants in 2011.

Ian Kennedy was responsible for 12 of the 17 strikeouts last night. I also wondered how many Padres pitchers have ever struck out at least 12 batters in a Padres loss. That has occurred 10 times in Padres history with the most recent time being in 2009 when Jake Peavy struck out 12 Diamondbacks in a 3-1 loss. Poor Jake also had 2 16 strikeout outings where the Padres lost.

Finally, I was curious how often a Padres pitcher has homered in a loss. It turns out that a Padres pitcher has homered 23 times in a loss but none of them had more than 8 strikeouts.

Thanks to the awesome Baseball-Reference Play Index for the data.
