Maine Shelled As Mets Lose To Astros 8-3

John Maine had a really bad start going 5.2 innings and giving up 8 runs. He still doesn’t have the velocity on his fastball that he had in the first half of the season.

Ryan Church looked good in his comeback going 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored. And Brian Schneider hit another homer tonight. He’s really finding an offensive groove right now.

The Phillies won today so the Mets are only 1.5 games up in the division with a series in Philly coming up next week.

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.
