Since the Padres started play in 1969, here's how other teams have fared in that department. They're in alphabetical order by team nickname because that's how I got them out of the Play Index. Since having a pitcher giving up 10 or more runs in a game is a relatively rare event, the totals go all over the place. The A's and Royals have led in this department from 1969 on with 18 such games. Surprisingly, the Nationals/Expos have had only three pitchers give up 10 or more runs in a game and no one did it until 1969 1999.
