Mets outslug Padres to finish sweep

Padres, Mets

Pete Alonso homered and finished with five RBIs as the surging New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of the visiting San Diego Padres with an 11-6 victory Sunday.

Francisco Lindor led the game off with a homer and Luis Torrens sparked a four-run eighth inning with a solo shot for the Mets, who have won 11 of 15. Six players had an RBI apiece for the Padres, who fell to 6-9 this month.

The Padres took their first lead of the series when Manny Machado hit an RBI single against Tylor Megill (2-3) in the first inning, but in the bottom half, Lindor hit the third pitch he saw from Dylan Cease (6-6) into the second deck in right field.

Brandon Nimmo singled and J.D. Martinez walked before Alonso homered to left for his first blast since June 4. Alonso was 5-of-30 in between homers.

The Mets chased Cease by scoring three times in the fourth, when Harrison Bader and Martinez sandwiched RBI doubles around a sacrifice fly by Lindor.

Jurickson Profar hit into a run-scoring groundout in the fifth to begin the Padres’ comeback attempt before they nearly tied the game during a four-run eighth.

Jackson Merrill worked a bases-loaded walk and David Peralta beat out the back end of a potential double-play ball to allow Jake Cronenworth to score. Ha-seong Kim laced an RBI double and Luis Campusano lofted a sacrifice fly before Kim was stopped at third on Luis Arraez’s single to right.

Drew Smith then struck out Fernando Tatis Jr. to end the threat.

Torrens led off the bottom half of the inning with a homer and Nimmo had an RBI single before Alonso’s two-run single. The five-RBI game is the ninth for Alonso and his first since he tied a career high with six RBIs against the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 7, 2023.

Nimmo finished with three hits while Torrens, Martinez and Bader had two hits apiece.

Megill allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings.

Arraez and Campusano had two hits apiece for the Padres.

Cease gave up seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over 3 2/3 innings.
