Did This Game Really Need To Be Made Up? Mets Lose 4-1

Making up a game which had been postponed on May 17, the Mets couldn't get anything going against the Marlins. They lost by a score of 4-1. The Mets are now back to being below .500.

  • Chris Capuano was off to a good start, retiring ten out of the first 11 batters he faced before running into trouble in the fourth inning. Capuano allowed three runs in the inning -- a two run double to Mike Stanton, followed by an RBI single from Mike Cameron. He lasted 7.2 innings, giving up a total of four runs on seven hits, while striking out five and walking two.
  • The Mets were held to just three hits all night by Marlins pitchers, and they were 0-5 with runners in scoring position.
  • The only Met who managed to get a hit off Marlins starter Clay Hensley was Willie Harris. Harris finished the night going 2-3 at the plate with a double, a walk, and a single.
  • The Mets finally got on the board in the bottom of the ninth. With the bases loaded, Jason Bay hit a sacrifice fly to bring home Daniel Murphy. Ronny Paulino then grounded out to end the game.

Next up: The Mets begin a three-game series with the Cardinals at Citi Field Tuesday night. Dillon Gee will get the start against Kyle Lohse. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
