Oliver Perez couldn’t get out of the fifth inning…again. And he gave up 7 earned runs. I liked Perez a lot more when half of his starts were pretty good. His season ERA is up to 9.31 now. What more is there to say about his start?
The Mets offense only mustered six hits. But the Nationals rookie pitcher Jordan Zimmermann looks like he’s going to be a good one. I have to say that it’s good to see that the Nationals have something going for them. I was starting to think that they don’t belong in Major League Baseball.
The Mets couldn’t finish the sweep thanks to another stinker by Perez. The Marlins come to town starting tomorrow night.
