To Error Is The Mets, A Loss Is The Outcome

In the second inning of the Mets 9-1 blowout at the hands of the Yankees, they committed three errors. Wright, Cora, and Evans all participated in an inning that reminded me eerily of The Bad News Bears.

Wright made an error the way he usually does, throwing the ball away while trying to field a slow roller up the third base line.

Cora, usually sure handed, made an errant throw to Luis Castillo covering

Evans, not to be outdone, mishandled a routine grounder by Mark Teixiera. The ball was bobbled in his glove, rolled out, fumbled it with his hand in foul territory, and then was unable to beat Tex to the bag. After such a display of ineptitude, the Mets found themselves down 4-0.

* The last time the Mets had three errors in one inning was back on July 20, 2004 in the ninth when Mike Piazza (1B), Kaz Matsui (SS), and Todd Zeile (3B) were the culprits in the Mets 11-4 loss to the Cardinals.
