Rays 10 – Mets 6 June 21, 2009

The story of this game was some really bad pitching by the Mets that allowed the Rays to win the series at Citi Field. Mike Pelfrey got bombed for 4 runs on 5 straight hits in the fifth inning. Bobby Parnell got rocked again in the seventh inning, giving up 4 runs without getting an out. B.J. Upton absolutely clubbed a ball into the second deck in left field off Parnell. What a shot that was! Then Sean Green reverted to his bad form by giving up 2 runs on 3 hits in the eighth without getting an out. It was a really ugly pitching performance.

The Mets offense put up 6 runs, which should be enough to win the game. They had 10 hits including a 3-run homer by Brian Schneider in the sixth, his second 3-run homer of the series. David Wright was 3 for 5 and made it through a game without striking out.

The Rays take two of the three games as the Mets welcome the St. Louis Cardinals to Citi Field for four games starting tomorrow night.
