Padres keep piling up zeros

The Padres' offensive futility seems to have no limits.

San Diego has been shut out seven times in April. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, no team in the history of baseball has ever before achieved that level of ineptitude.

And the Padres still have two games to go before the month ends, both in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. Oh, and the pitchers they'll be facing, Dodgers left-hander Ted Lilly and right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, both have shut out the Padres in the past.

The Padres are on pace to get shut out 45 times this season. The major league record is 33 by the 1908 St. Louis Cardinals. In the live-ball era, the record is 30 by the 1963 New York Mets. As bad as the Padres have been in the past, they have never been shut out more than 23 times in a season.

At their present pace, they'll be there right around the All-Star break.

The Padres' record for being shut out in one month is eight in July 2006.
