The big news in this game was that Bobby Parnell was making his first big league start. It turned out to be a pretty rotten one. He only went 2.1 innings 2 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks. It took him 68 pitches to get into the third inning. He’ll get stretched out in future starts but this first one wasn’t pretty.
The Mets non-existent offense only managed 1 run on a solo homer by Alex Cora in the first inning. They only put together 5 hits and 3 walks as a team. Unbelievably bad.
The Mets drop their third straight game to a pitiful Padres team and try to avoid the sweep tomorrow afternoon.
