San Diego, CA- The San Diego Padres continued their free fall saturday night as they fell to the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1. With the loss the San Diego Padres fall to last place in the NL West and now have the worst record in the National League.
The San Diego Padres are now just two losses at (34-47) ahead of the (34-49) Tampa Bay Rays for the worst record in all of Major League baseball.
The Diamondbacks began the season with an (8-22) start and no one thought anyone in the NL West would be worse than them as the season progressed, but apparently the San Diego Padres were up to the challenge as they have been been just as awful and have now replaced the Diamondbacks in last place.
