The Mets lose another series to the Cardinals. They haven’t won a series all season. It’s about as ugly as it can get in April. They only had 4 hits in the game and scored three runs in the third inning and one of those was unearned on Adam Wainwright’s throwing error.
Wainwright went the distance tonight only giving up the 4 hits. His opposition, John Maine, wasn’t great but looked better than he has in his previous starts. It did take him 115 pitches to get through five innings but that’s not unusual for Maine.
The goat of the game is Ryota Igarashi who gave up the game losing 2-run homer to Ryan Ludwick in the eighth inning. The Mets had to rely on Tobi Stoner to get through 2.1 IP and he did alright for a guy just in from Buffalo giving up 1 run on 3 hits and a walk. They really had no choice after last night’s marathon game blew out everyone in the bullpen.
