The first three games of this series were extremely low-scoring, with a grand total of 9 runs in as many games. The final game, however, took a twist. The Mets lost, but the score was 8-6, while the rest of the games had a final score of 2-1.
In the opener, the Mets were hoping for extra innings until reliever Scott Schoeneweis pegged the winning run with bases loaded, causing a WALK-OFF HIT BATSMEN. Disgusting.
A no-decision for Mike Pelfrey looked like a definite win when he was in the game, as he went six innings and only allowed one run.
In the second game of the series, the game was a defensive one throughout. The teams finally broke silence in the sixth, when the Mets took a 1-0 lead. The Padres answered back with two runs of their own to take the lead and never looked back.
AGAIN, the Mets took a 1-0 lead in the following game, then blew it AGAIN with another walk-off. Pedro Feliciano was the one to point the finger at in this game, as he gave up a walk-off homer to Scott Hairston.
In the final game, both team’s bats came alive, but the Mets again fell on the losing side. And yes, the Mets did take an early lead AGAIN. They scored three runs in the top of the first, but you’ll neevverr guess what the Padres did after that. Answered back with three runs of their own.
Billy Wagner then blew his third save of the season when he had a two-run lead to work with. He allowed four runs in the bottom of the eighth, giving the Mets’ offense little time for a comeback.
