Eric Stults combined with five relievers to hold the Mets to just five hits, helping the Padres earn their first win and avoid a season opening sweep.

New York's Dillon Gee yielded just three hits and three walk over six and 1/3 innings, but suffered the loss.

The Mets got three hits from Justin Turner and two from John Buck, including a solo homer in the ninth to account for the team's lone run.

Jedd Gyorko had a RBI double for the Padres, who scored what turned out to be the game winning run on a wild pitch by Jeurys Familia in the eighth inning.

Huston Street allowed the homer to Buck, but held on for the save.

The Mets (2-1) host the Marlins on Friday afternoon.
