Orioles 5 – Mets 4 June 18, 2009

The Mets looked like they had this one wrapped up with a 4-3 lead going into the ninth and Francisco Rodriguez coming into the game. But K-Rod blew his second save and this one was completely on him. He looked really bad loading the bases and walking in a run before giving up another game winning hit to Aubrey Huff.

Livan Hernandez had another very solid start going 7 innings and giving up 2 runs. As usual, he gave up 8 hits and 1 walk but did a good job of limiting the damage.

The Mets offense was paced by Carlos Beltran, Alex Cora, and Luis Castillo with 2 hits apiece. Again, the Mets had no home runs and only one double by Daniel Murphy. Not much power in this lineup.

The Orioles take two of three games from the Mets as they come home to face the Rays.

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. How sad is that? The Orioles opted to walk Beltran late in the game to face the guy leading the league in batting average. Can you say strike out / non clutch?

  2. Dave, Frankie is human, he showed it yesterday. in fact the whole team is human they show it every day. lol. thankfully Philly cannnot beat teams at home, and we are still breathing. but Omar better wake up soon, this triple A lineup (Beltran and Wright excluded) is not going to get this done.

  3. TD .I can say it, and I believe I said it so many times ,that I sound like a runaway loop on a tape machine
