Stromman won for the second time in a row, leading the Mets 6-2
San Diego (Associated Press)-Marcus Stroman threw more than 6 strong rounds and doubled the game, leading the New York Mets to a 6-2 victory over the San Diego Padres team.
The Mets won the last two games of the four-game series and won the split in a battle between two top NL teams.
Stromman gave up only one unearned run and four hits in 6.2 innings, and struck out at the same time. His double play on the left field line in the seventh inning allowed Jose Peraza to lead New York 4-1 from the first start.
Padres starter Chris Padak pitched relatively well, but surrendered in the third, fourth and sixth innings.
