Nationals 5 – Mets 2 April 11, 2010

Florida Marlins at New York Mets

The game was over in the first inning. The surprise was that the Mets lost this one because of Johan Santana. He was horrible in the first, giving up a grand slam to Josh Willingham. The Mets couldn’t do anything offensively while Livan Hernandez got his revenge on the Mets for releasing him last August.

The Mets lose their second straight home series to start the season. They begin a series in Colorado starting Tuesday night.

Highlights:

  • Santana – 5 IP, 5 ER in the loss
  • Jeff Francoeur – 2 for 3 and hitting .476 on the season; he also had an assist at the plate cutting down Adam Dunn on a beautiful throw
  • The Bullpen – threw 4 more scoreless innings today
  • Mike Jacobs- hit one out in the eighth off Brian Bruney to quiet the boo birds
  • K-Rod- hit Willie Harris in the ninth and didn’t like what Harris had to say about it, the bullpens and benches emptied but it didn’t turn into a fight

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.

    1. I think Jerry has got to be on very thin ice. I don't know about Omar, but it's not good. You can't lose two home series to division opponents to start the season and feel good about it.
