Oliver Perez improved greatly over his last start in San Francisco but it wasn’t enough to beat the lowly Padres. For the third consecutive game the Padres beat the Mets by a score of 2-1. This time it was in ten innings on a home run by Scott Hairston off Pedro Feliciano.
The Padres only other run in the game was also a solo homer by Michael Barrett in the fifth inning off Perez.
The Mets left 11 men on base and just can’t seem to come up with a big hit in this series despite missing Greg Maddox, Jake Peavey, and Chris Young the Padres three best pitchers.
Surprisingly, Carlos Delgado went 3 for 4 in the game to raise his average to .237 for the season.
