Not even the Padres’ historically inept offense can slow Jesse Hahn these days. It certainly tried.

Matched up against the Reds’ Mat Latos, the 24-year-old rookie struck out a career-high nine over five scoreless innings to survive a 1-0 win Monday at Petco Park, the Padres’ one-hit showing in front of 19,079 somehow just enough for Hahn to win his fourth straight start amid baseball’s worst offensive month since 1920.

With just 141 hits in 825 at-bats, the Padres finished June with a .171 average, dipping below putrid April showings (.176) by the 1972 Brewers and the 1966 Athletics, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

“At the end of the day, you want to win the game and we won today with pitching,” Padres manager Bud Black said after celebrating his 57th birthday with the team’s second one-hit win this month. “You want to be able to say over the course of a season that at times that you won it with hitting. … We haven’t quite got there yet, but there’s half a season to go. I think those games are in there. We just have to keep going.”

Only one other team – the 1965 Dodgers – has ever won two one-hit games in a season, let alone in the same month. More than three weeks after Everth Cabrera’s bunt single accounted for the lone hit in a 3-2 win over the Pirates on June 4, the Padres managed only Tommy Medica’s second-inning single en route to their June average plunging to a historic low.
