Padres scored 200 runs ... in 66 games... the lowest total of runs scored in the MLB

Mitchell Leff

The Padres are still last in the MLB in runs scored, but they finally hit the 200 run barrier in their 66th game.  Only the 1972 Padres took longer to get to 200 runs, hitting the total in 68 games.   In a 162 game season the lowest run total for the Padres was in 1969 when they scored 468 runs, averaging 2.89 per game.

The current team's pitching staff is still doing a pretty good job of limiting runs though.  They are 4th among all Padres teams after 66 games with 256 opponent runs.  The total ties them with the Cubs for 7th place in the MLB.

The team is also last among MLB teams in batting average (.216), OBP (.275) and Slugging % (.344).  We may be watching one of the worst offensive teams ever and that's really saying something considering the teams we've seen take the field in the Petco Park era.
