Marlins 7 – Mets 5 May 15, 2010

New York Mets' Jason Bay sits in the dugout following their loss in their MLB National League baseball game against the Florida Marlins in Miami

The Mets lost their fourth straight game and six of seven. John Maine regressed tonight with a terrible start. He walked the first three batters of the game without throwing a strike. He was lucky to get out of the first inning only giving up 3 runs on 40 pitches. You knew it was going to be a long night right from the start. He finished up going 5 IP and gave up 6 ER raising his ERA to 6.13.

The offense was switched up with Jose Reyes going back to leadoff and Angel Pagan hitting third. It paid some early dividends with the team having 13 hits and scoring 5 runs. Reyes was 2 for 5 hitting leadoff.

The offense wasn’t enough to make up for Maine’s awful start. It’s really become a sorry looking team over the last 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.
