The game started out on a nice positive note with the Mets jumping out to a 4-0 lead and there was Jose Reyes finally getting a knock in his 2nd at bat. Too bad that hit lead him to leave the game due to his oblique acting up.
Reyes felt a twinge in BP yesterday and again after his first 2 at bats and Manager Jerry took him out. Reyes left the game alot easier then when Jerry took him out in first game as manager playing the Angels . Reyes seem to realize that its better not to make it worse. More on Reyes later today when he gets to the ballpark.
The Mets had a 4-0 lead early and Niese was cruising but gave up a 2 run homer to of course Handley Ramirez and then in the 6th it was over . 7 runs crossed the plate as the Mets went on to lose 11-4 despite having lead off walks in 7 of the 9 innings.
Mets go another day with picking up ground in the standings with Philly losing and the Braves and Giants idle.
Look for Pelfrey to kick off the series with the Astros who come off sweeping the Phillies at Citizens bank ballpark.
