Mets lose 7-1 to Padres in Game 1 of Wild Card Series

Max Scherzer turned in the worst outing of his career, and the offense did not show up as the New York Mets fell to the San Diego Padres, 7-1, in Game 1 of the National League Wild Card Series on Friday night at Citi Field.

Scherzer was booed off the field after allowing a career-worst seven earned runs on four home runs over 4 2/3 innings. He became the first pitcher in Mets’ history to allow four long balls in a postseason game.

New York’s lone run came in the bottom of the fifth. Eduardo Escobar drilled a solo home run over the left-field wall. He recorded two of the team’s seven hits. Starling Marte collected a pair of hits in his first game since September 6.

The Mets will try to avoid elimination on Saturday at 7:37 p.m. with Jacob deGrom on the mound.
