Cook Four Hits Mets For 4-1 Win

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.

Box score

On Deck: May 25- Mets At Rockies

New York Mets (23-24) at Colorado Rockies (19-30)  3:05pm

John Maine (5-3) vs. Aaron Cook (6-3)

TV: CW11 Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets have a chance to win the rubber game of the series in Colorado today. Maine’s last start on Tuesday was forgettable. Otherwise, he’s had a good season. I think that we’d all like to see Nick Evans in the lineup again today after his monster Major League debut yesterday. Willie Randolph would feel much better about his meeting with the Wilpons tomorrow if he went in off winning the road series in Colorado.
