After rallying for a stunning victory in the opener of this four-game set, the Mets look to continue overcoming some key absences when they face the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.

A fractured left pinkie has put 27-year-old San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley(notes) out of commission for 4-6 weeks, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
