The Mets have a rough night in the rain as they lose to the San Diego Padres

The New York Mets were defeated by the San Diego Padres by the score of 11-5 on Thursday night. The game was played at Citi Field in Flushing,NY in front of a sparse crowd on a rainy night. Jeremy Hefner started for the Mets and was not very good. The bullpen wasn’t very good either for the Mets. David Wright led the Mets offense which he has been doing all season long. Eric Stults started for the Padres and pitched well, he just didn’t go deep into the game. The bullpen used a bunch of guys, two of them gave up four runs but the other three were very good. Cabrera led the offense although they got a lot of production up and down the lineup.

Ramon Ramirez pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and striking out two, Manny Acosta pitched two innings giving up five hits and three runs with a walk and four strikeouts and Robert Carson pitched two innings giving up three hits and two runs with a walk.
