Padres lead the National League in runs scored

April 21, 2015

The team with the worst offense in all of baseball last year has certainly improved. Adding the 14 runs scored Monday against the Rockies, the Padres have now scored 73 runs to lead the NL. They've only played 14 games so far, but Zachary D. Rymer of Bleacher Report notes that the Padres are averaging almost two more runs per game this season compared to last year (5.21 to 3.30). The teams' remade outfield has been a major contributor. Matt Kemp and Justin Upton are each hitting over .300, and while Upton already has three home runs, Kemp and Wil Myers each have one.
