Mets Lose Sloppy Game To Padres 4-2

The game looked like it might be over early when Pedro Martinez gave up two solo homers in the first inning. But he bounced back to pitch 6.1 innings giving up three runs and only two were earned. It was a good performance for Pedro.

Other than Daniel Murphy the Mets had no solid offense tonight. Murphy was 3 for 5 with a triple and an RBI. The Mets left 10 runners on base in this one.

Eddie Kunz worked the eighth inning and gave up a solo homer. It’s the first homer he’s given up since he was a freshman in college.

David Wright made an error at third and a bonehead play on the bases. It’s the second night in a row he’s made a big mistake on the bases.

The Mets go to three games behind the Phillies with the loss tonight.
