The Mets six game winning streak finally came to an end tonight in a close game in DC. The Mets offense was inexplicably stymied by Livan Hernandez for 8 innings. He only allowed 7 hits and 2 earned runs. The Mets made a nice comeback attempt against Drew Storen in the ninth but it wasn’t enough.

Chris Capuano had a very shaky start and isn’t showing that he can consistently give a solid starting effort. He allowed 10 hits and 4 runs over 5.2 innings. Pedro Beato had another fantastic effort going 2 scoreless innings and still hasn’t allowed a run this season.

The Mets head to Philly for a three game series starting tomorrow night.

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.
