Reds 5 – Mets 4 May 5, 2010

New York Mets starting pitcher Jonathan Niese throws against the Colorado Rockies in their MLB baseball game in Denver

I only got to see the first four innings of this one because I was at work today. The bottom line is the Mets lost the second game in the series on a walk off home run in extras. Today Orlando Cabrera hit one off Pedro Feliciano in the tenth inning.

Jon Niese had a decent line: 6 IP and 4 ER. That’s not terrible but he had traffic on the bases in almost every inning. He gave up 12 hits in those 6 innings. Not good.

Angel Pagan and David Wright both had nice games at the plate. Pagan was 3 for 4 with a SB and 1 run scored. Wright was 2 for 5 with a solo homer, his 7th of the season.

The Mets finish their road trip at 2-4 and come home to play the Giants this weekend.

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.
