The San Diego Padres' 2010 season was their 42nd season in MLB. On August 27, the Padres had a 6.5 game lead over 2nd-place San Francisco, and wound up missing the playoffs as the Giants passed them in September.

Regular season[edit]

Cardinals at Padres, May 25

Many preseason predictions picked the Padres to finish the season in last place in the NL West.[1]

On April 12, 2010, (Padres home opener) the Padres scored 17 runs against the Atlanta Braves as they went on to win 17–2. (Including a 10 run 4th inning making it the most runs in one half inning of baseball in Petco Park's history)

In the Padres' 1–0 win over the San Francisco Giants on April 20, San Diego won despite San Francisco's Jonathan Sanchez and Sergio Romo limiting them to just one hit, one of the very rare occasions that a team won with just one hit.

Even though the Padres never had a pitcher who threw a perfect game, Mat Latos threw a one hitter in a 1–0 win over the Giants on May 13.

On May 29, the Giants signed free agent outfielder Pat Burrell.[2] Padres CEO Jeff Moorad, Burrell's friend and his former agent, would later say he regretted not recruiting Burrell to the Padres.[3]

On May 31, the Padres played 51 games and are 2.0 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers. They had one of the highest winning percentages in the National League despite having poor attendance and one of the worst payrolls in the MLB. The Padres had one of the lowest ERA in the National League.[4]

On June 11, the Padres had 36 wins and 25 losses. They were tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers in first place.

On June 14, in the Padres' 6–3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, an earthquake shook Petco Park. Many fans and Cito Gaston, the Blue Jays' manager, felt it, but most of the players didn't feel it. Gaston reported that he felt the dugout move side from side a little.

On June 23, the Padres have the first two games in the series against the Tampa Bay Rays. They placed 2.5 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants for first place.

On June 25, the Padres won the first game of a three game series against the Florida Marlins. Giving them 43 wins and 30 losses. In contrast, the Padres record after 73 games in 2009 was 32 wins with 41 losses.[5] There were constant rumors and talks about the possible trade of All-Star first baseman and Gold Glove winner Adrian Gonzalez.

On August 18, the Padres moved 6 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants giving them their biggest division lead of the season

On August 23, the Giants acquired outfielder Cody Ross off waivers from the Florida Marlins to block him from going to the Padres.[6][7]

On August 25, the Padres were 76–49 and in first place with a 6  12 game lead.[8]

On August 26 The Padres started a 10-game losing streak by losing to the Arizona Diamondbacks 5–11. The losing streak went in to the month of September and ended on September 6 when they beat the LA Dodgers 4–2.[9]

On September 26, the Padres (87–67) had a 12-game lead over the Giants (87–68).

On September 30, the Padres fell 3 games behind the San Francisco Giants after losing 3 out of 4 games to the Chicago Cubs, putting them on the brink of elimination. With a 3–0 loss on October 3 the final game of the season, the Padres were officially eliminated from playoff contention and the Giants won the division.[8] The Padres led the NL West for 148 days in 2010.[9] They set teams records for the fewest errors (72) and highest fielding percentage (.988) in a season.[10]
