Final Score: Padres 2, Mets 1—Nearly no-hit by Padres, Mets come back, lose anyways

The Mets lost to the Padres again on Sunday afternoon, wrapping up a disappointing first weekend after the All-Star break.

The Mets nearly gave the San Diego Padres their first ever no-hitter this afternoon at Petco Park, but Daniel Murphy put an end to that possibility with a two-out double in the eighth inning. At the time, the Mets were only down 1-0, as Zack Wheeler had a good start, and David Wright knocked him in with a single to tie the game.

Unfortunately, that was the high point of the game for New York. Jeurys Familia worked around a leadoff triple in the bottom of the eighth to keep the game tied, but a combination of Vic Black—who walked the first man he faced and committed a through-the-wickets error on an ensuing sacrifice bunt attempt—and Josh Edgin allowed the Padres to plate the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

With that, the Mets dropped two of three in a series that required at least the inverse.
