Henry Blanco provided the only offense for the Mets -- a two-run home run in the second that gave the Mets a 2-0 lead at the time. Sadly, he was the last baserunner the Mets would have on the day, as Padres pitchers retired the next 22 batters en route to a 4-2 victory. Johan Santana allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks in 6.2 innings, digging a hole which was far too deep for the Mets enfeebled offense to overcome.
Unintentionally sexual quote of the game: "He's very capable of yanking it over the wall." -- Wayne Hagin on Henry Blanco
