The Mets lost the game and the series tonight despite another solid performance by Jon Niese. The problem was that Bronson Arroyo was better. Niese went 7.2 IP giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk. He also had 8 strikeouts but did give up 2 home runs.

The Mets offense did put together 8 hits and 1 walk but just couldn’t make it translate into runs. Once again, Angel Pagan had a big game with the bat. He was 2 for 4 with a solo homer in the first off Arroyo and that was all of the Mets scoring. Josh Thole was 2 for 3 also.

The Mets lose two out of three to the Reds and, unfortunately, the Braves won again tonight over the Phillies.

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.
