ESPN will host Saturday’s matchup between the Padres and Mets in Game 2 of the Wild Card round of the 2022 MLB playoffs. First pitch set for 7:37 p.m. at Citi Field in New York, New York.

The Mets were upset in Game 1 of the series by the Padres 7-1 at Citi Field on Friday night. Manager Buck Showalter went galaxy brain on the lineup and started Max Scherzer instead of ace Jacob deGrom. Scherzer, normally lights out, had his worst playoff start of his career, allowing four HRs and seven earned runs in the loss. The Mets offense was also shut down by Yu Darvish, who allowed one run (one HR) over 7.0 innings.

The Padres had a power surge and could be dangerous if they’re able to get past the Mets. San Diego’s lineup is stacked from Jurickson Profar through Manny Machado, Juan Soto and Josh Bell. It’s unlikely the Padres get to deGrom and put on a similar performance. If they can work deGrom and get to the bullpen, things could end up like Friday night.
