The San Diego Padres offense had its best performance of the season thus far, smashing 18 hits for 11 runs in an 11-5 rout of the Mets at Citi Field on Thursday.

Jeremy Hefner was battered around in his first big league start, falling to 0-2, allowing six runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings.

Every position player in the Padres lineup had at least one hit, with the 1-thru-5 hitters all getting at least two hits and an RBI. Meanwhile, Everth Cabrera, hitting in the eight-hole, was 4 for 5 with two runs scored. A nice feat for team that ranks third-worst in the league in team batting, and is ranked second to last in runs scored. Full box score from

David Wright finished the night 3 for 5 with a HR and two RBI, raising his batting average to .405.

Ike Davis who has struggled for the first two month of the season (.164 BA) was told earlier in the day by manager Terry Collins that he would not be sent to the minors, an option the team considered to help the Met first baseman find his swing. Davis did not start against left Eric Stults, but did have a pinch hit, two RBI single in the eight.

Stults (1-0) got his first win with five innings of four hits ball. The Mets scored an unearned run off Stults on Nick Hundley’s throwing error.


Game note: The game was delayed for over an hour after the second inning due to rain.
