Quick Recap: Padres 7, Mets 3 — Harvey Rocked

Baxter tried, Baxter tried.

Matt Harvey's third start didn't go nearly as well as his first two. In five innings, he allowed five runs to score on eight hits — two home runs and several other extra-base hits — while striking out five and walking just one. The Padres scored twice in the first and three times in the third to take an early five-run lead.

The Mets' bats were mostly silent against Jason Marquis until they scored two in the sixth on a two-run, pinch-hit home run by Ronny Cedeno and one in the seventh. But Ramon Ramirez allowed two runs between the seventh and eighth innings to widen San Diego's lead again, and the Mets didn't score for the rest of the game.

We knew it was over when...

Carlos Quentin homered in the bottom of the seventh to put the Padres ahead six-to-three.

What else?

  • Through July 5, David Wright was hitting .354/.443/.570. He is now hitting .325/.420/.541. He hasn't been awful over the month, but he obviously hasn't been as dominant a hitter as he was over the first three months.
  • Today's game was only the third this season in which the Padres hit three home runs at Petco Park.
  • Despite the loss, the Mets finished their eleven-game road trip with a 6-5 record.
