Padres always happy to play in PNC Park
PITTSBURGH -- The Padres have won each of their last nine games at PNC Park, the longest active winning streak for any team against an opponent at its home ballpark.

The Padres are 26-9 all-time at PNC Park and have never lost consecutive games there.

Last year the Padres came to Pittsburgh and scored 35 runs over a three-game series.

"I'm not sure why," manager Bud Black said. "[Is it] whether we just happened to be playing well when we came here? I just know the last couple of years, we've had some success in this park. It just might have been coincidental [that] the guys were swinging the bats well. I wish I had the answer. I do know in talking to our players, it's a good hitting background, guys see the ball here, they like this park and they feel good about it."
