Padres shutout rate puts them within striking distance of franchise record

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres were shutout twice in Colorado in the prior series.  Now they've been shutout 8 times of the 178 games they've played at Coors Field, increasing their shutout percentage from 3.4% to 4%.   It's the lowest shutout location for the Padres in places they've played more than 70 games.

With the Dodgers keeping the Padres scoreless last night they are being shutout once for every 7.63 games, 13.1% of the time.  With that the team is on pace for 21 shutouts on the season.  All it would take was for the Padres offense to mail in a couple more games and they could own the franchise record for being shutout.

Looking at the table below, it's still pretty amazing that the 2004 Padres were only shutout 3 times.
