Dodgers 8 – Mets 0 July 7, 2009

The Mets lost their fourth consecutive game and were shutout for the second consecutive game. The team hasn’t been this low and lifeless in quite some time. Mike Pelfrey was terrible after having an excellent start in Milwaukee last week. He gave up 5 runs (4 earned) in 3+ innings and that killed the Mets. It took him 95 pitches to get through 3 innings. Talk about struggling on the mound! In all, the Mets gave up 13 hits and 7 walks to the Dodgers. The Dodgers had 5 two-out RBI’s in the game.

The Mets have absolutely nothing going on offense right now. They only had 4 hits and 2 walks.

The only interesting part of the game was Manny Ramirez going 2 for 4 with 3 RBI’s and getting thrown out of the game. He got a called third strike, for the second time, and threw his elbow pad in the air in the direction of the umpire. That’ll do it.

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.
