Final Score: Padres 8, Mets 2 — Mejia leaves with elbow discomfort, bullpen proves discomforting

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

On the night of Travis d'Arnaud's debut, the Mets weren't very good in a loss to San Diego.

The Mets lost to the Padres on Saturday night as Travis d'Arnaud made his major league debut. Jenrry Mejia was effective, if inefficient, through three innings, but a few pitches into the fourth, he grimaced after a pitch and was pulled from the game with elbow discomfort. Here's hoping Mejia's injury was merely a flare up of the bone chips floating around in his elbow.

As for d'Arnaud, he went 0-for-2 with two walks and had a passed ball behind the plate. It wasn't a spectacular debut by any means, but he didn't look out of place playing in a big league game.

The game was tied at one halfway through the third inning, but San Diego scored three runs in the fourth. Although the Mets scored one run in the fifth, San Diego answered with a run in the bottom of that inning and blew things open on a three-run home run by Jedd Gyorko in the eighth inning.
