That Was A Crappy Way To End A Homestand

The Mets lost to the Padres this afternoon by a score of 3-2.

  • Jon Niese went 7.2 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits, while striking out seven and walking two. He gave up a home run to Cameron Maybin in the sixth inning. He allowed the Padres to tie the game in the seventh inning on an RBI single by Luis Martinez. Niese had a chance to get out of the eighth inning unscathed, but with two outs, he was let down by his defense. Ruben Tejada made a costly fielding error which allowed Maybin to score the go-ahead run for the Padres. Tejada made two errors in the game.
  • The Mets scored two runs in the third inning on a double by Lucas Duda. They were held to just three hits all afternoon. The other two hits belonged to David Wright and Jason Bay.
  • David Wright now holds the franchise record for total bases with 2,048.
  • The Mets were 1-10 with runners in scoring position and stranded nine men on base.

Next Up: The Mets head to Arizona to begin a three-game series with the Diamondbacks Friday night. Dillon Gee will start for New York. Game time is 9:40 p.m.
