Padres Fall To Mets Again, 5-2 This Time

Denis Poroy

The Mets scored three runs before the Padres scored any, and that would have been enough. The starters took the decisions, with Jon Niese improving to 5-6 and Ian Kennedy falling to 4-9.

Kennedy gave up three homers and all five of the Mets' runs before being pulled with two outs in the fifth. Niese lasted six innings and only allowed one run on a solo blast by Will Venable in the third inning. The homer extended his career high in home runs to 16 and his present hit streak to 13 games.

Chase Headley doubled in the eighth and was singled in by Yonder Alonso but it was too little, too late. The Padres lost by the final score of 5-2.
