Mets Game Notes
Didn’t see this game, either, as I have a day job.
From the box score, the storyline remains consistent: again, the Mets squander strong starting pitching due to an inability to score runs.
Mets pitchers limited the Marlins to three hits. However, Marlins pitchers limited the Mets to two. Mets pitchers struck out 10, but walked 6. Meanwhile, the Mets lineup struck out only a half-dozen times, but walked only once while seeing a paltry 106 pitches (Marlins forced Mets pitching to toss 147).
So what happened to the philosophy of being patient / deep counts / taking walks / etc.? Seems they either walk in situations when a hit is needed, or they don’t walk at all.
Please, if you saw the game, post your comments. If my DVR worked, I’ll watch and add more here later.
Next Mets Game
Mets take a travel day on Thursday and return to Flushing to host the Phillies on Friday night. Jenrry Mejia takes the hill against The Pitcher Formerly Known As Fausto Carmona (Roberto Hernandez … but not THAT Roberto Hernandez).
