June 19, 2004
Two weeks after striking out 19 Padres at Shea, Tom Seaver struck out "only" 10 Padres in this game at San Diego.
Seaver improved to 5-0 with a four-hitter. The only San Diego run came on a sixth inning homer by SS Steve Huntz, who finished his career with a lifetime .206 batting average and 16 home runs. Former Met Chris Cannizzaro was the starting catcher for the Padres.
Donn Clendenon drove in both Mets runs with a bases-loaded single in the fourth off Irvington, NJ native Al Santorini.

A year earlier Seaver struck out 14 Padres in a 3- 2 Met victory that was also played in San Diego. Al Santorini was also the tough luck loser in that game as well.
