The Mets were shut out in San Diego on Saturday, as Tyson Ross threw seven scoreless innings against them. Ross might not be a household name, but he has been very good over the last season-and-a-half. And given his dominance, the Mets just couldn't afford the four runs Dillon Gee allowed in five innings.
If there was a silver lining in Gee's start, it was that he struck out eight and walked none, but he gave up a couple of home runs—a tough thing to do against the 2014 Padres. Carlos Torres allowed a run in the sixth, too, and Josh Edgin was charged with an unearned run in the eighth to make it 6-0 in favor of the Padres. With that, the teams will play a rubber game at 4:10 PM EDT on Sunday afternoon.
