NEW YORK (AP) - Chase Headley tied a career high with four hits
and the San Diego Padres beat the New York Mets 6-5 on Thursday
night to win the first regular-season series at Citi Field.

Jake Peavy settled down after allowing Carlos Delgado's long three-run homer in the first and surprising San Diego held on for
its sixth win in seven games. Former Mets reliever Heath Bell
pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save in five chances.

The Padres looked right at home in New York's spacious new
facility, with its expansive outfield reminiscent of the power alleys in their Petco Park. They only needed one extra-base hit to send the Mets to their fifth loss in seven games.
