The Mets lost 7-5 last night and even though they had a chance to tie with there new 3rd place hitter Angel Pagan up with a man on they still lost.
The Mets as usual squandered many a chance to tie the game before the 9th. They did break out with 13 hits and 5 players had 2 a piece. Of course the Mets had runners on 3rd again with less then 2 out and could not score earlier in the game.
Maine walked the first 3 batters of the game in 12 pitches. He gave up 3 runs but the Mets battled back to tie.
Jeff Francoeur went 0-4 and seems to have nothing right now. He will sit today and more then likely we will see Chris the animal Carter in right field. feel bad for Frenchy since he does try hard and is great in teh clubhouse but he needs to just hit the ball without that massive swing sometimes. Beltran was trying to talk some sense to him before the game. So now Frenchy will head to Atlanta with the team after todays game and will press even more since he will be playing in his home town.
Maine pitched 5 innings and gave up 6 runs. His ERA is now a ridiculous 6.13.The Mets need to seriously start to think about adding a pitcher to there rotation. If Maine cant get it right and will Ollie already done the Mets could really be in trouble.
Niese goes today after he had a rough start at home against the Nationals. The Mets have not won a game since last Tuesday in the come from behind victory.
Mets are 3-6 since the start of playing 17 games straight. 1 here left in Fla then 2 in Atlanta, 2 in DC and then 3 at home against the Yankees before a day off a week from tomorrow .
