Tough 13 Inning Loss For Mets & Perez

The Mets just lost the game to the Dodgers in 13 innings, by a 3-2 score. Once again the Mets offense was non existent.

Mike Pelfrey started and lasted an amazing...five innings. Once again, pitch count was high, registering 82 pitches, allowing two runs.

The Mets were held scoreless until the sixth inning, when they tied the score. That was also the last hit they got, being held hitless for the final seven innings.

Elmer Dessens pitched out of trouble in the 11th and 12 innings, getting out of a bases loaded jam.

Perez came on in the 12th with one out, and closed out the inning a pop up to Blanco, and forcing a FC at second for the final out.

With one out in the home 13th, Perez allowed a game ending, yes another walk-off, HR to James Loney. The Mets are a horrific 2-8 on this west coast road trip, and wathcing their play off hopes circling the drain.

Rod Barajas was removed from the game in the top of the sixth with strained right oblique. This is the third oblique injury to Mets this season (Pagan, Reyes, Barajas). Henry Blanco replaced Barajas.

I stated when he came off DL that I think he will be gone by Sept. 1 - whether by trade or released. I still think it's a distinct possibility.
