Cappy Pretty Crappy In Mets Loss

The Mets fell behind early, and were never able to catch up, losing to the Marlins by a score of 9-3.

  • Chris Capuano struggled from the start. He went four innings, giving up six runs on eight hits, while striking out three and walking one. A wild pitch and a single gave the Marlins an early 2-0 lead. After pitching a perfect second inning, he then gave up a solo home run to Jose Lopez. Things fell apart once again in the fourth inning, as Capuano gave up three more runs.
  • D.J. Carrasco was not good tonight. There are actually other words I would use to describe his appearance, but this is a family site. In his two innings of relief, he allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits. The first five Marlins batters he faced were able to reach base.
  • David Wright hit his first triple of the season to start the fourth inning, and he later scored the Mets first run of the game on a ground out from Angel Pagan.
  • The Mets scored two more runs in the ninth inning on a two-run shot to left field off the bat of Jason Bay.

Next Up: The Mets and Marlins meet up for game two of their three game series tomorrow night. Miguel Batista gets the start against Chris Volstad. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
