Thursday night's game between the New York Mets and the San Diego Padres was delayed before the first pitch of the third inning due to rain. The rain has been on and off throughout the day at Citi Field, so the delay will hopefully not last much longer. Play was stopped at 7:37 p.m. ET with the Mets leading 1-0.
The Mets scored in the bottom of the second. Vinny Rottino and Andres Torres were on second and first base, respectively, with one out. They attempted a double steal, and Rottino rounded home when the throw to third by Padres' catcher Nick Hundley sailed over the head of Chase Headley. Torres beat the throw back to third but Rob Johnson grounded out Jeremy Hefner struck out swinging to end the inning.
Hefner has given up one hit, and struck out one so far on the mound. Padres starter Eric Stults has given up one earned run on three hits, and has one strikeout.
