The Mets lose another road series on the eve of Willie Randolph’s meeting with ownership in New York. The Mets have now lost 6 of their last 7 games and looked completely uninspired today making two ugly errors in the field and more baserunning problems.
Aaron Cook went through the Mets like a buzzsaw today giving up only four hits and one walk over nine innings.
John Maine wasn’t particularly good but kept the Mets in the game. He went six innings giving up four runs (three earned). That should be enough to keep the Mets in the game in Colorado.
Jose Reyes let a ball go through his legs with a man on first that would have been a double play. That led to a three run homer by Seth Smith in the fourth inning and that was all that the Colorado Rockies needed today.
Reyes was also picked off first. The second time in this series that he’s been picked off. He’s playing like his head is in the clouds.
Carlos Delgado also had an ugly error at first base. For both Reyes and Delgado it was their sixth error of the season.
The Mets head home tonight to begin a three game series with division leader Florida Marlins.
