Padres win 500th home game at Petco Park

The Padres bopped the Cardinals right on the beak last night with a 9-3 victory.  They won their 60th game of the season and their 30th at home in Petco Park this year.  Maybe more importantly they also won their 500th game at Petco Park. I kind of wish that they had pulled out the same 500 sign covered in roman candles that they used for Trevor Hoffman's 500th save.  I enjoy those little nods to the past.

We were there back in 2004 when they won their first one on Petco Park Opening Night.  I was not there last night because I haven't been to a game in forever and sometimes I forget that the season is still in session.

If you're anything like me then you want to see how the season win totals broke down.  Look at that the Padres also have a nice even number of losses at 450.  I'm actually a bit surprised they have a wining record at home, though maybe I shouldn't be.
