Mets 5 - Padres 4
R.A. Dickey had a good start tonight that was supported by good defense and offense by the Mets, but tough luck Dickey would not get the win. The Mets would have to take it to the 10th inning in San Diego to get the victory.
In the 2nd inning Lucas Duda crushed a solo HR deep into the right field seats at Petco Park. This was Duda's 5th home run since the All-Star break. Duda leads the Mets in 2nd half home runs which is great for Duda but really sad for the Mets who by mid-August do not have a player that has reached double digit home runs. Lower the left field fence Freddy!
The next power punch came from the unlikely source of Josh Thole who hit a 2 run home run to right field pushing the Mets to a 3-0 lead.
