Pedro Shelled As Mets Lose To Rockies 7-1

image Pedro Martinez cruised through the first four innings but got clobbered in the fifth giving up six runs and effectively ending the game.

His final line was 4.1 IP/ 9 H/ 6 E/ 6 ER/ 1 BB/ 5 K/ 2 HR. It was a really bad start including home runs on back to back pitches by Garrett Atkins and Brad Hawpe.

All of the Mets offense happened in the first inning on a Jose Reyes triple and a Luis Castillo sacrifice fly. The Mets did manager to load the bases in the ninth inning but it was too little too late.

Ubaldo Jimenez was on fire tonight pitching eight innings for the Rockies and gave up only two hits and one run. He also chipped in two hits and a run scored.

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.
