The Mets couldn’t get much offense going against Clayton Kershaw. They only had 8 hits and 4 walks in the game and left 10 on base. Only Jose Reyes had an extra base hit for the Mets, another triple that scored Daniel Murphy in the bottom of the ninth.

R.A. Dickey was decent but not outstanding again going 7 innings and allowing 3 earned runs. He did allow 10 hits and 2 walks so he had trouble going throughout the game.

The Mets won the series despite the loss today and head to Colorado for a three game series.

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.
