Padres historically bad at plate

No hitters

Tim Lincecum’s no-hitter against the Padres on Wednesday was a fine performance but may warrant an asterisk. He shut down a team on its way to a historically bad season at the plate. The Padres have scored 37 fewer runs than the second-worst team and are dead last in batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging. How they compare to the other 11 teams who also finished last in the four categories since 1962, when both leagues began playing 162 games. All numbers through Thursday’s games. — COMPILED BY RICHARD McSWEENEY
