Cubs Clobber Mets Niese In 9-5 Win

The Mets lost their third straight game after starter Jon Niese got rocked for six runs over three plus innings. The ultimate embarrassment was giving up a grand slam to the opposing pitcher Jason Marquis. It was the second opposing pitcher to hit a grand slam off the Mets this season.

The shaky bullpen went on to give up three more runs over the final six innings.

The Mets had 11 hits on the night but it was all for naught again as the Mets continue another late season slide.

Carlos Beltran was shaken up when he hit the wall hard making a catch. He did stay in the game despite the nay-sayers that have called him “soft” for the past four seasons.

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.

One thought on “Cubs Clobber Mets Niese In 9-5 Win”

  1. Beltran has definitely helped this team offensively since August. I always felt that he was a garbage time player, gathering stats when games were way out of hand. He looks a lot more confident at the plate now.
