If you didn’t stay up late to watch this one, you didn’t miss anything. The Mets made the nondescript Padres look like a good team. And the game was over in the third inning anyway. Livan Hernandez was horrible giving up 7 runs in 5 innings to a very weak San Diego lineup.
The Mets had very little offense and it didn’t help that Gary Sheffield couldn’t play. They only managed 8 hits and 4 walks. The only extra base hit was a double by Fernando Tatis. The impotent Mets offense couldn’t get much going against Padres rookie Clayton Richard.
