Deja, deja vu: Walkoff homer makes it another 2-1 loss

Another night game against the Padres, another 2-1 loss.

Scott Hairston knocked a Pedro Feliciano fastball over the left field wall in the bottom of the 10th early Sunday morning for a walkoff home run that put the New York Mets back under .500.

Starter Oliver Perez didn’t go too deep in the game, but he had a much better outing than his previous 1/3-inning, 6-run performance. Perez gave up one earned run and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, with one of those hits being a home run.

The Padres’ Brian Giles broke up the no hitter in the first inning with a double to center to bump the count up to 7,381 games. For the record, the Padres are one of just three teams other than the Mets to have never thrown a no hitter. The others are the Tampa Bay Rays and the Colorado Rockies.

The Padres however did become the first team to ever win four consecutive games by a score of 2-1 – one against the Cubs and three versus the Mets.
