Manager Andy Green liked the Padres’ chances in the eighth inning of Sunday’s game, in which all the players wore pink. But Green was seeing red after a scenario unfolded that seemed unlikely in a 4-3 loss to the Mets.
Padres pitcher James Shields was more “Big Fly” than “Big Game.” Shields was touched for two home runs — including the first of 42-year-old pitcher Bartolo Colon’s career — as San Diego fell to the Mets, 6-3, on Saturday night at Petco Park.
The Padres’ Andrew Cashner is pitching against the Mets on Sunday, and that’s appropriate on Mother’s Day. Cashner’s mother, Jane, is a breast cancer survivor and will be in attendance. Matt Harvey will oppose Cashner in the series finale at Petco Park.
