Cardinals 3 – Mets 0 June 23, 2009

The Mets were victimized by a 2-hit shutout thrown by Joel Piniero. His sinker was working against the Mets anemic offense. Although Livan Hernandez pitched very well again, it wasn’t enough to match Piniero. Hernandez went 7 innings giving up 3 runs, 2 earned, after another Daniel Murphy error at first base. Elmer Dessens worked the final two innings without giving up a hit which is a good sign with the Mets overworked bullpen needing some help.

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.
