Edinson Volquez is looking for the longest winning streak of his career, and a start at Petco Park may be just what he needs.

Everybody is going to have their bad day. As good as Edinson Volquez has been for the Padres as of late, he had one of those bad days last night. We know that he can be a wild pitcher at times. We saw it early in the season, especially on opening day, and the old Eddy came back to put us in a hole early. It wasn't necessarily a deep hole, but for once Bud Black got in there just...

The Mets beat the Padres tonight by a score of 6-2. Jeremy Hefner was excellent tonight as he pitched 6 innings of one run ball. The best part about it was it only took him 72 pitches to do it.

SAN DIEGO - A day after their defense and weak hitting mucked up a game, the Mets starched up their performance while the Padres misfired in Petco Park.

This afternoon at 4:05, the Mets go for the series win at Petco Park. After last night’s 6-2 victory over the Padres, the Mets seem as if they may have broken out of their second half funk.
