Eduardo Escobar hits for cycle as Mets defeat Padres in series opener

Eduardo Escobar hit for the cycle as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres, 11-5, in the series opener on Monday night at Petco Park.

Escobar finished 4-for-5 and drove in six of the Mets’ 11 runs. The veteran third baseman completed the cycle in the ninth with a two-run triple. This was the first cycle by a Met in 10 years, with Scott Hairston the last to do it on April 27, 2012

J.D. Davis brought home a pair of runs, while Brandon Nimmo, Jeff McNeil, and Tomás Nido also collected RBIs. Starling Marte and Mark Canha had two-hit games.


Carlos Carrasco started on the bump for New York and allowed two runs over seven innings while striking out 10. Drew Smith served up a three-run home run in relief.

The Mets will go for the series win on Tuesday night with Taijuan Walker on the mound. The first pitch is slated for 9:40 p.m.
