The Mets took a tough loss in the bottom of the ninth in this one. What’s worse, is that it was a well pitched game by Mike Pelfrey and Randy Wolf through the first 6 innings. The Mets were down 2-1 after the sixth on a Prince Fielder home run. The Mets scored 5 runs in the seventh off Kameron Lowe on a rally that Jose Reyes (who else?) started.

The Mets bullpen couldn’t hold the lead with Pedro Beato, Jason Isringhausen, and Dale Thayer gave up 5 runs in the final two innings to blow the lead and lose the game.

The Mets offense was solid and the seventh inning explosion was teed up by Reyes but Ronny Paulino hit a 3-run homer. He was 4 for 4 on the night with 3 RBI’s. Big night for Paulino.

The Mets and Brewers will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow night.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
