Final Score: Mets 6, Padres 2

Player Of The Game: Daniel Murphy- 4-for-4, 2 R

Goat Of The Game: Andres Torres- 0-for-4, 3 K

Notes:

  • The Mets knocked out Padres starter Edinson Volquez very early. Volquez had awful command, walking four batters in just 1.2 innings.
  • Walks were a theme on the night for the Mets. They walked a total of ten times. Mike Baxter along walked 5 times.
  • Jeremy Hefner pitched very well, allowing just one run over six innings. He may not have been the most high-profile pickup this winter, but he has done a great job filling in while Johan Santana has been on the DL.
  • Frank Francisco entered the game with one out in the ninth and recorded his 19th save of the season.
  • The Mets play the Padres in the series finals today at 4:05. Matt Harvey (1-1, 1.59 ERA) will go up against Jason Marquis (4-6, 4.08 ERA).
