Padres Series Preview May 23-25

The Mets and their major league-worst 5.14 ERA welcome the last-place Padres to town for a three-game set that pits baseball’s lowest-ranked offense in terms of batting average and on-base percentage against a patchwork pitching staff that’s spent more time on the trainer’s table than on the mound. New York will look to win consecutive […]
