Mets lose 3-1, and fall to 1-2 on the season.
The Good: Jon Niese threw 6 quality innings, allowing 3 runs. Angel Pagan and Jeff Francoeur each had 2 hits. Bullpen (Igarashi, Takahashi, Nieve, Feliciano) threw three scoreless innings.
The Bad: The offense managed only one extra base hit, a meager eight total bases and zero walks. Ouch. A couple defensive mishaps didn't help Niese (poor angle on a ball in the gap by Pagan), even though there were no errors charged.
Mets open up a three-game series tomorrow night versus the Washington Nationals (1-2), Mike Pelfrey vs G. Mock. Washington is just what the doctor ordered, hopefully.
Let's go Mets
