Mets, Perez Ripped By Dodgers 5-1

Rafael Furcal led off the game with a homer against Oliver Perez, and that was a sign of things to come. Perez went on to give up homers to Matt Kemp and Blake DeWitt as well.

The good thing about the game is that Perez was able to get through six innings. It may have only been because Willie Randolph left him out to dry no matter how bad the game got.

Now the Mets need to take both remaining games from the Dodgers to win the series.

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.
