You can’t win ‘em all. After taking both sides of the doubleheader on Monday, the Mets got shutout by the Marlins last night. Marlins starter Javier Vazquez hurled a seven inning gem, limiting the Mets to just three hits, zero runs, one walk, while striking-out six.
On the other end of the spectrum, Mike Pelfrey got spanked. In six inning, Big Pelf got knocked-around for six hits, four earned-runs, and four walks. The bullpen didn’t exactly come to the rescue either. Tim Byrdak surrendered a run in just 1/3 of an inning, and D.J. Carrasco let-up one of his own in an inning of work.
Despite providing offensive support in the two prior games, the Mets bats were silent in game three. Jose Reyes, Justin Turner, David Wright, and Josh Thole brought the thunder, with Wright and Thole both enjoying multi-hit games.
In addition, Reyes made an error for his second game in a row–bringing him up to fifteen total on the season. The usually steady fielder (in season’s past) has been within the bottom ten among Major League shortstops in UZR/150 (-1.5).
The Mets are now 64-69.
