The New York Mets were defeated by the San Diego Padres 3-2 in the finale of the four-game series. They only mustered three hits the entire afternoon, having more luck achieving six base on balls. Lucas Duda drove in the Mets only runs on a double in the third inning to put them up 2-0. Jonathon Niese pitched well but slowly lost the lead in the later innings. A botched play in the field decided the game as the Mets fall under .500 for the season.

Niese has all the right to look frustrated as an error costs him the game.

These guys just keep on rollin'.

The Texas Rangers smacked 3 home runs, and Matt Harrison silenced the Mets’ bats to give Texas the easy win.  The Mets now drop to 37-39 on the season.

The Rangers jumped on the Mets early in this one — Adrian Beltre crushed a 2-run home run off Mike Pelfrey in the bottom of the first (after a Josh Hamilton RBI single) to give Texas a 3-0 lead.  While the game was being played in Arlington (where no lead is safe), and the Rangers’ staff does lead the league in home runs allowed, it was clear that the Mets had an uphill climb against Texas starter Matt Harrison.  Featuring a fastball that consistantly hit the mid-90’s, he allowed just 1 run in his 7 innings of work.

R.A. Dickey pitched 8 brilliant innings, and the Mets scored early and often to bury the Braves Sunday night.  They are now 28-31 on the year.

For the second straight start, R.A. Dickey pitched a great game.  The only run he allowed was Brian McCann’s leadoff 7th inning solo shot, and by that point the Mets had already built up a 6-0 lead.  They scored all 6 runs in the first 5 innings and were able to jump on Braves starter Tim Hudson early — after 2 innings, it was already 4-0.  Carlos Beltran, who drove in Jose Reyes for the first Mets run, fouled a ball off his right shin in the 2nd inning.  He had to leave the game, but x-rays eventually came back negative.

The Philadephia Phillies scored 4 runs in the last 2 innings, including a 3-spot off Francisco Rodriguez in the 9th, to down the Mets by a score of 6-4.  The Mets fall to 23-27 with the loss.

It was my first live Mets game of the season, and it didn’t disappoint (except for the final score, of course).  It was a pretty lively crowd, about as full as you’ll get for a non-Yankee opponent this time of year, and it was just about perfect baseball weather (for once, this year).

The Phillies built a 2-0 lead off of Mets starter Chris Capuano on RBI singles by Jimmy Rollins and starting pitcher Roy Oswalt in the 3rd and 5th innings, respectively.  But the Mets were able to strike back with RBI singles of their own — Carlos Beltran in the 5th, Ronny Paulino in the 6th, and Justin Turner in the 7th — to take a 3-2 lead into the 8th inning.

The New York Mets were defeated by the Chicago Cubs 11-1 on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. Terrible efforts from the defense and bullpen really put the Mets at a disadvantage all game. Jonathon Niese suffered his fifth loss of the season as the Mets fall to 22-25 on the season.

 

After a game like this, I can only imagine what Freddy Wilpon is going to say next...

Mike Pelfrey got the win tonight, giving up 3 runs in his 6.2 innings of work, as well as knocking in the game-winning 2-run double.  The Mets now improve to 16-20 on the year.

Jose Reyes got things started with a double to lead off the game, and then Daniel Murphy followed with a single to set up the inning against Rockies starter Jason Hammel.  Ike Davis singled both of them in to grant Pelfrey a quick 2-0 lead.  Pelfrey, however, gave it back in the 2nd inning on solo shots to certified Met-killer Troy Tulowitzki and Seth Smith.

Clayton Kershaw pitched 6.2 innings of 1-run ball and Andre Eithier hit a key 7th-inning 2-run home run to lead the Dodgers to victory over the Mets on Mother’s Day.  The Mets’ record now stands at 15-19.

For the first 6 innings, R.A. Dickey and Clayton Kershaw locked into a 2-1 pitcher’s duel.  Ronny Paulino singled in the first run of the game, but that would be all the Mets would get off of Kershaw today.  Meanwhile, the Dodgers were able to scratch single runs off Dickey in the 3rd and 4th innings, who took another hard-luck loss today.

Happy Mother's Day!
