Mets Commit 3 Errors In Loss To Angels 6-1

Johan Santana didn’t have it tonight in Jerry Manuel’s first game as the Mets manager. Jose Reyes was hurt in the first inning and showed up Manuel when he was pulled from the game. The game felt like a resounding thud for the Mets.

There was virtually no offense in the game for the Mets against Jon Lackey. Damion Easley scored in the first inning on a double play ground out by David Wright. That was it for the Mets offense.

Santana pitched six innings giving up five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out five. Aaron Heilman pitched a clean seventh inning and Claudio Vargas gave up one more run in the eighth.

The Mets were sloppy in the field with errors by Carlos Delgado, Marlon Anderson, and Luis Castillo.

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.
