Read the wrap-up of Saturday’s game in which the Mets fell to the Padres for the third straight game. They still don’t know how to win in PETCO Park. Their offense has hit the skids again as they have scored only six runs in the past three games. This comes after a nine-run outburst against the Cardinals on Wednesday.
The Mets are now 11 games behind Philly for first place in the division and 10 games out in the Wild Card race. With an upcoming 11-game homestand against much better competition after a three-game series with the Diamondbacks, the nail is pretty close to being driven in the coffin for the season.
