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 NoNoHitters.com 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.
