It looked like it was going to be another disasterous night when Daniel Murphy singled in the first inning and attempted a steal before Chad Billingsley even moved. Murphy was easily picked off by Billingsley in a bizzare play. In the bottom of the first Murphy muffed a fly ball hit right to him in left field by Juan Pierre. And Pierre would come around to score on a single by Orlando Hudson.
There just wasn’t much offense by the Mets garnering only 6 hits tonight. The Mets and Dodgers finish their series in Los Angeles tomorrow night.
