If you though it couldn’t get any worse offensively after the previous two games, you were wrong. Back-to-back
games of just four hits was not enough futility apparently. The Padres went out and did one better – a three hit performance. R.A. Dickey dominated San Diego as the Mets won 2-0.
Edinson Volquez pitched a solid game, but it would have taken a shut-out performance just to earn a no-decision. Volquez pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowed five hits, three walks, and just the two runs. The Padres offense completely let him down.
Dickey pitched seven strong innings, allowed just three hits, and struck out 10 confused Padres batters. His knuckleball was working wonders for him against the hapless Pads.
