Isringhausen Earns 300th Save As Mets End Skid

It took ten innings, but the Mets were able to beat the Padres, 5-4.

  • R.A. Dickey went 6.1 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits, while striking out four and walking one. Dickey left the game after giving up a two-run home run to Will Venable, which cut the Mets lead to 4-3.
  • Lucas Duda and Josh Thole (JOSH THOLE?!) hit home runs in the second inning to give the Mets an early 3-0 lead. Thole also drove in the Mets' fourth run of the game as well with a single to right field. Duda has now homered in back-to-back games.
  • Bobby Parnell pitched one inning too many. Parnell entered the game in the seventh inning, and was able to get two quick outs to get out of the inning. Manager Terry Collins left him in to pitch the eighth inning though. He walked Orlando Hudson who would eventually score on an RBI single by Jesus Guzman to tie the game.
  • Scott Hairston drove in the winning run in the top of the tenth inning on a fielder's choice.
  • Congratulations to Jason Isringhausen who earned his 300th save. It would have been nice for Izzy to reach this milestone at home, however, it is a tremendous feat, and he should be proud.

Next Up: The Mets continue their series with San Diego tonight at PETCO Park. Jon Niese will start for New York. Game time is 10:05 p.m.
