The Padres winner of Game 1 send Andy Hawkins (18-8 3.15 Grade 13Z) to the mound, while the Mets send Ron Darling (16-6 2.90 Grade 15Y).
The Padres would jump out in front scoring 3 runs in the 2nd. A 2 RBI triple by Garry Templeton and a single by Tim Flannery to score Templeton. The Padres would add 3 more in the 3rd. Run scoring doubles by Terry Kennedy, Carmelo Martinez, and Templeton again the big hits. The Mets would try to get back in the game with a run in the bottom of the 3rd as Mookie Wilson would single home a run.
It would be too little too late as the Padres would add an insurance run in the 5th and Hawkins would take care of the rest limiting the Mets to 7 hits. The Mets are now in a 2-0 heading back to San Diego for 3 games.
Final Score: Padres 7, Mets 1
