Mets Drop Fifth Consecutive; Lose To Arizona 9-5

The Mets started the game looking great with John Maine getting through five innings; Carlos Delgado hustling for an extra base on a single and an error; Moises Alou coming back and looking great but it all fell apart. The Mets lose their fifth consecutive game and first of the series to Arizona.

Maine went only five innings giving up three runs while throwing 101 pitches. Claudio Vargas lost the lead in the sixth inning before there was the game was suspended due to thunderstorms.

Duaner Sanchez got bombed in the ninth inning. He gave up three runs on two homers to Stephen Drew and Connor Jackson.

On offense David Wright had a home run to left in the second inning. Moises Alou came back with a key two RBI single in the first inning, it was on the first pitch he saw back from the disabled list.

The Met struggles continue with the only good news being that the Phillies finally lost a game. So the Mets stay even at 7.5 games back.

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.
