The Mets lost today 3-1 to the Reds being swept in the process of the three game series. After scoring a bunch of runs against the Rays, the Mets only managed five against the Reds. The Mets got a good outing from Chris Young today but the offense was a now show.
The only run the Mets scored was on a bases loaded walk by Chris Young which is all you need to know about this game. Young pitched seven innings and only gave up two earned runs but suffered the loss. Luckily for the Mets, the Nationals were swept in their three game series against the Yankees so the Mets will remain 3.5 games back.
The Mets will now welcome the Orioles to Citi Field followed by the Yankees.
The Mets lost their second straight home game last night by a score of 4-1 to the Reds. The game was basically over in the top of the first inning when Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer off Jon Niese on a hanging curveball. The Mets had numerous opportunities to tie the game early but Reds starter Homer Bailey was able to escape.
It has been a disappointing start to the home stand for the Mets after sweeping the Rays in Tampa. The Mets have blown chances to creep closer to the Nationals who have lost two straight games to the Yankees.
With the loss, the Mets fall to 35-31 on the season 4 Ĺ games behind the Nationals. The Mets are currently in third place in the NL East as they trail the Braves by Ĺ game for second place.
The Mets will try to salvage the three game series today when they send Chris Young to the mound against Johnny Cueto. The game will be played at 1:10 pm.
The Mets lost tonight by a score of 7-3 to the Cincinnati Reds. The biggest event coming out of this game was that Jason Bay left the game with another possible concussion after crashing into the fence in the second inning. Jay Bruce got an inside the park homerun on the play.
Bay has been a disaster since signing with the Mets but I actually feel bad for the guy. He crashed into the wall trying to make a catch and clearly hit the wall pretty hard. I donít see any way he doesnít go back on the disabled list.
Bronson Arroyo continues to own the Mets. Luckily the Nationals finally lost tonight to the Yankees so the Mets wonít lose any more ground. The Mets will look to tie up the series tomorrow night with Jon Niese on the mound.
