Jorge Sosa gave the Mets six innings in his first start coming off the DL, and he did it after a rocky start. That Sosa lasted that long without any physical problems is the most important thing that came out of the game.
-David Wright has hit in seven straight games, and in 39 of 43 overall.
-Sosa’s double was the first of his career.
-The Mets went 2-for-6 with runners in scoring position. The problem is they didn’t get many guys within sniffing distance of home.
Tonight’s starter, Orlando Hernandez (5-4, 3.20 ERA) is 2-0 with a 2.40 ERA lifetime against the Padres.
