Padres Recap: Padres Win A Wacky One In New York
After a forty-four minute rain delay, Justin Upton hit a three run homerun with two outs in the ninth inning, giving the San Diego Padres 8-7 lead over the stunned New York Mets.
Immediately after Upton’s homerun the game was postpones again on account of lightning and rain, this time for nearly three hours.
Craig Kimbrel then came in to capitalize and collect his 3oth save of the season.
Of course, we can’t forget one of the biggest moments in this game, Derek Norris‘ Grand Slam!
Andrew Cashner got the start for the Padres bu did not have his best stuff today. The potential trade piece did not help out AJ Preller’s case. Cashner surrendered seven runs on six hits, including two homeruns in his five and 1/3 innings pitched today. Kelley, Maurer, and Mateo all performed well to keep the Mets within striking distance for their late inning rally.
