Mets Vs. Padres Final Score: New York Beats San Diego 6-1

The New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 6-1 Friday night, rebounding from an 11-5 loss on Thursday to split the first two games of the four-game series. Dillon Gee got the win for New York, giving up four hits over seven innings while striking out nine and walking three. That's a strikeout career high for Gee, who also doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the third. Tim Byrdak and Ramon Ramirez each pitched an inning of relief with neither giving up a hit.

San Diego scored in the top of the first on a sacrifice fly by Jesus Guzman, and Lucas Duda answered for the Mets with a solo home run in the second. They added a pair of runs in the third and three more in the fifth. Ike Davis had two RBI on the night, with Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Mike Baxter, Daniel Murphy, and Duda collecting one each.

Game three of the series will be Saturday afternoon, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:10 p.m. EDT.
