The Mets got a quality start from knuckleballer R.A. Dickey who went 6 IP and gave up 2 ER’s. He did pretty well for himself throwing 96 pitches and looked like he could have gone further in the game. The bullpen couldn’t hold on with Raul Valdes and the tired Fernando Nieve giving up 3 runs between them.
The offense was pretty weak again with the Mets only getting 5 hits as a team. One was an inside the park home run by Angel Pagan.
Pagan seems to be one of the only guys going out to make plays on a daily basis. He also started a triple play in the fifth. It was partially due to some poor work by the umpires. They were slow to make a call on whether Pagan caught a shoestring catch and that left the base runners hanging.
The Mets look pretty lifeless and feels more and more like watching the 2009 Mets.
