Mets beat Padres 8-4: Clayton Richard gives up 3 home runs in loss

Padres fall to 0-2 to start season

NEW YORK - Matt Harvey allowed one hit and struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings for his first win at Citi Field, Lucas Duda hit the first of the Mets' three homers in a whipping wind and New York beat the San Diego Padres 8-4 Wednesday night.

John Buck and Ike Davis also connected against homer-prone Clayton Richard in the Mets' second straight romp over San Diego. They opened the season with an 11-2 win Monday.

David Wright added an RBI double and Duda doubled, reached base three times and scored twice in a game that began with a wind chill of 32 degrees.

Making his 11th career start -- fifth at home -- the 24-year-old Harvey warmed up quickly in the frosty conditions in front of a crowd of 22,239.

Catcher Nick Hundley had 2 hits and an RBI for the Padres.
