The Mets got smacked around by the Giants in the final game of the four game series to earn a split. The big news is that David Wright and Billy Wagner were both in the dugout with the team, although they’re headed in different directions.

Also big news, Livan Hernandez actually made it out of the first inning without giving up a run. But he ended up going 5.1 innings and giving up 6 runs on 11 hits and a walk. Tim Redding also got bombed in the eighth inning giving up 3 more runs on 4 hits.

The Mets weak offense reared its ugly head again with the team only able to come up with 8 hits and 4 walks. Only one of those hits was for extra bases, a double by Daniel Murphy.

The Braves come to town for a series starting tomorrow night.

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.
