SD Padres 2012 Baseball Season Review
By SD Padres Baseball Tickets Staff Writer: R. Murray
SD Padres Year in Review:
The San Diego Padres' 2012 season was their 44th season in MLB, and their eighth at PETCO Park. The Padres finished with a record of 76-86, fourth place in the NL West.
The Padres started the season 20–41, the worst record in the major leagues at the time. By June 20, they were 22 games under .500. But fans remained positive.
Starting pitcher Casey Kelly, obtained in the 2010 trade of Adrian Gonzalez to the Boston Red Sox, made his major league debut with San Diego on August 27, 2012. Kelly earned a win after pitching six shutout innings in a 3–0 victory over the Atlanta Braves. He also recorded his first major league hit in the game.
Kelly was the 15th different starting pitcher used by the Padres in 2012, which matched a club record set in 2002 and tied in 2009. The Padres ended the season with 24 pitchers throwing at least 15 innings.
Thank you fans!
Because of you, SD Padres had a fun season!
