The Mets appeared to be lost right from the start of this one only to come back and get into the game. Nelson Figueroa got absolutely demolished! He gave up 6 runs in 1.2 innings including three home runs, two to Mark Reynolds. The bullpen did a great job of holding the D-Backs scoreless over the final 7.1 innings but the damage was done.

The Mets climbed back into the game scoring in the third, fifth, and sixth innings.

The really bad news here is that the Mets lost three of four at home to the lowly D-Backs. This type of terrible series just shows how poor this Mets team is right now. And don’t expect to see Figueroa again with the Mets after this dismal performance. At 35 years old they’re just not going to give him multiple chances to get bombed like he did tonight.

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.
