Another Day, Another Loss To The Nationals

Stop me if you've heard this one before. The Mets lost to the Nationals, 2-0, and couldn't do a thing at the plate.

  • Mike Pelfrey pitched well tonight, giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings. Both of those two runs were unearned.
  • David Wright committed another error. In the third inning, his fielding error in the third inning allowed for Ian Desmond to reach base. Desmond would later score on a single by Michael Morse.
  • The Mets offense was, for lack of a better word, pathetic. They were 1-11 with runners in scoring position, leaving ten men on base.
  • Then there was the bunting. For the love of all that is holy, please stop with the bunting. In the bottom of the ninth with no outs and two runners on, Justin Turner was unable to lay down a bunt. Jason Pridie then grounded out, and Jose Reyes lined out to end the game.

Next Up: The Mets close out their series with the Nationals tomorrow afternoon. Chris Schwinden gets the start. Game time is 1:10 p.m.
