Fun's Over; Padres Drop Series to Mets

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

A 1-3 morning loss halts the Padres from starting that winning streak that was supposed to happen.

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Unlike the lovely shutout yesterday thanks to Jesse Hahn and Co.; the Friars fall short of anything resembling the level of production they showed less than 24 hours ago. Everth Cabrera kicked off the first inning bunting into a double play due to some poor baserunning from Will Venable; and opposing pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka was taken out of the game the following inning due to an upset tummy.

I'm guaranteeing to you that it was because he was in such close proximity to such a disgusting offensive play.

A home run and an RBI-double from New York in the first was all the Mets needed for today; and sacrifice fly in the second would make sure that Rene Rivera's RBI-single that same inning wouldn't mean anything for the remainder of the game. Ian Kennedy wasn't as dominate as one could hope, giving up 3 earned runs but striking out 7 in only 5 innings pitched. But to expect pitching at this point to have to completely shutout the opposition in order to win continues to be an unrealistic goal.

Rivera knocking in our only run of the day with a tough smack up the middle.

The Pads pooled together a total of four hits today. We went 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position. Although drawing a total of 5 walks between, the top of our lineup went hit-less.

Today was not a very Happy Padres Day at all.

Most of us slept through today's game; setting our alarms for the Game of Thrones season finale. TheThinGwynn and Darklighter showed up though, tying for 2 recs. I'm going to give this one to Darklighter though.
