Nationals 3 – Mets 2 May 10, 2010

MLB: APR 25 Braves at Mets

The Mets got a good start from John Maine, his third in a row. He went 6 IP giving up 2 ER on back to back homers by Adam Kennedy and Ryan Zimmerman in the third inning. He did have a lot of traffic on the bases giving up 7 hits and 4 walks but managed to keep the damage to a minimum.

Pedro Feliciano was terrible in the eighth inning giving up 3 straight hits and a run while only recording one out. That’s where the game was lost.

The Mets did have 12 hits including a long home run in the ninth by Angel Pagan. The Mets left 11 runners on base including Ike Davis leaving 5 and Jose Reyes 4. Speaking of Reyes, he got tossed in the seventh inning for throwing his bat and helmet down after a called third strike. Jerry Manuel came out and got tossed immediately after Reyes.

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.
