The New York Mets (6-6) offense went silent again as they fell to the San Diego Padres (7-5), 4-2, on Tuesday night at Citi Field.

It was just a one-run game until the ninth inning when Xander Bogaerts crushed a two-run home run off Dennis Santana to open it up and make it 4-1, Padres.

New York had just four hits and went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Mark Canha plated a run with a sacrifice fly, and Tommy Pham drove in a run with a single.

David Peterson surrendered two runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings while walking two and striking out six. Denyi Reyes and Brooks Raley had scoreless outings in relief.

The Mets will try to bounce back and take the series on Wednesday at 1:10 p.m. Tylor Megill will take the ball, looking to improve to 3-0.
