Game 41: Another unhappy Recap.

Despite a great individual effort from Angel Pagan (inside the park HR and a Triple Play), the Mets bullpen blows the game and lose 5-3.

  • The Mets offense struggled again, getting only 5 hits
    • Reyes and Castillo were 0-8 combined at the top of the line-up
      • Nationals 1st two hitters were on base 4 times
  • R.A. Dickey threw 6 innings, allowed 2 runs and struck out 4, while 9 hitters reached base (4 walks)
  • F Nieve got one out, but allowed 2 hits and walked another
    • He has walked > 5.8/9 innings, which is unacceptable for anyone, especially a reliever
      • He simply isn't effective any more. All the work in April may have taken it's toll
  • Oliver Perez walked A Dunn in relief, but then got a soft liner to end the inning
  • F Tatis hit a HR in the top of the 9th
  • Livan Hernandez saw his ERA raise up to 1.62, but still threw 6 1/3 and only allowed 2 runs.
    • The magic show continues
Mets try to split the series tomorrow John Maine vs Luis Atilano, 7:10 PM. The Mets are 1-6 on this road trip, in last place and 6 games behind the 1st place Phillies...
