Mets Game Notes
As has been the case in most Mets losses, the starting pitcher wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great, either. Dillon Gee allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in five innings — and that was all Arizona needed to win the ballgame.
The Mets starting rotation is made up of a bunch of reliable back-end starters — which is enough to get a team into the postseason if the offense is among the elite and the defense is above average. Unfortunately, the Mets offense is only above average and the defense is only average, so they are a .500 ballclub. But lucky for us, they have a lot of fight in them and keep us entertained.
On a positive note, Jason Bay was 3-for-4 with his tenth double of the year and drove in his 42nd RBI of the season.
Also on the positive, Ryota Igarashi spun two scoreless innings of relief.
