Another Day, Another Dumb Loss

The Mets lost to the Marlins by a score of 4-3, dropping their fourth straight.

  • Chris Capuano went six solid innings, giving up two runs on four hits, while striking out five and walking two. He gave up two home runs, both solo shots off the bat of Omar Infante.
  • Jose Reyes hit his fifth home run of the season in the fifth inning. It was his first home run of the season from the right side.
  • Bobby Parnell was actually decent tonight. Parnell pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
  • The ninth inning was awful. Jason Isringhausen entered to close it out, and one walk, one single, one hit batsman, and one throwing error later, the Mets were losing 4-3. Starting to become a recurring theme here. You can blame Izzy for loading the bases ( as you should), but as a pitcher, you rely on your defense to help you out. Izzy finally got a ground ball, and Justin Turner threw the ball away, allowing the tying and go-ahead run to score for the Marlins.

Next Up: The Mets finish their series with the Marlins Wednesday night. Dillon Gee gets the start. Game time is 7:10 p.m.

  1. What makes this loss, combined with last night's loss, even worse -- ATLANTA LOST BOTH GAMES. That's totally part of the post-game wrap-up. TWO in the standings the Mets should have picked up. TWO!!! How absolutely important those two games could have been, especially with the weekend series against Atlanta. If the Mets miss the Wildcard by 2 games, these last two will be responsible for blowing it.
