The Padres held on for a 3-1 victory over the New York Mets on Monday (Sept. 9) at Petco Park in San Diego, Calif. The win avenged a 5-7 extra-inning loss to the Mets the previous day (Aug. 8). The Mets had their seven-game winning streak snapped.

Kim, who injured his toe in the previous game when he kicked a bucket of water in the dugout in frustration after being tagged out running to third base, missed the game. The injury is not expected to land him on the disabled list, but he will be checked on a daily basis. Matthew Batten started at second base in Kim’s place.안전놀이터

San Diego opened the scoring in the bottom of the second after a leadoff double by Sanchez and an infield single by Cronenwirth put runners on first and third with no outs. Batten, who replaced Kim at second base, then blasted a two-run shot to left field with one out for a 3-0 lead.

The Mets cut the deficit to 3-1 in the top of the seventh when leadoff hitter Francisco Alvarez hit a solo home run to left-center field off reliever Luis Garcia, but were unable to put the game away. The two teams meet for the final time in the first half on Oct. 10.
