Yes the team continues to battle and not roll over, but at the end of the day, the starting pitching is just not getting the job done. Tonight it was Niese's turn, as he gave up 2 home runs, and the Mets lose 5-4.
This was definitely a winnable game, as E Rogers showed some promise, but any left-handed hitter could easily sit on his fastball, as Beltran did all 3 of his at bats against him, hitting the ball very hard, which was nice to see.
Troy Tulo is a monster, and single-handily beat the Mets the past two games both with his bat and his glove. He is a legit MVP candidate.
Mets play a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 12:10. R.A. Dickey vs Greg Reynolds, and Chris Capuano vs Jorge De La Rosa 30 minutes after the first game.
If Mets sweep, they split the series. But it will be a tall order.
