John Maine wasn’t impressive tonight giving up three runs in the first inning. He did settle down and make it through six innings but it was a rocky start.
Luis Castillo left the game after turning a double play and the early word is that he has a strained hip flexor. I can’t believe we still have 3.5 more years of him with the Mets.
Russell Martin killed the Mets tonight going 4 for 4 with 3 runs and 3 RBI’s. The Dodgers 20 year old starter Clayton Kershaw wasn’t great tonight in his second big league start. But you can see that he’s got some talent with a good fastball and big 12-6 curve.
The game got out of hand due to Aaron Heilman once again. He had a few good outings but reverted back tonight giving up four runs without getting an out on four straight hits. Overall it was an ugly game for the Mets pitchers.
