Pomeranz, Padres bullpen shut down Mets, 2-0
SAN DIEGO (AP) Drew Pomeranz and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, Jon Jay had three hits and an RBI, and the San Diego Padres beat the New York Mets for the second straight game, 2-0 on Friday night.
The Padres, who have been blanked eight times this year, pitched their first shutout of 2016. They've held the defending NL champion Mets to three runs and seven hits in the first two games of a four-game series.
Pomeranz (3-3) allowed only a single to Asdrubal Cabrera with two outs in the fourth while striking out five and walking three in five innings. His effort came a night after Colin Rea took a no-hitter into the seventh in San Diego's 5-3 victory.
Noah Syndergaard (2-2) took the loss after allowing two runs and six hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked two.
