Game 139 Recap: Marlins Do Not Welcome Mets Back With Open Arms, Lose 9-3
Why can’t things just be the way they were? Despite taking four out of five in the last series against the Marlins, the Mets dropped the first game of their latest match-up, 9-3.
Mets starter Chris Capuano was not on his game. Capuano hurled four mediocre innings, giving-up eight hits, six earned-runs, and one walk. He also struck-out three batters. D.J. Carrasco didn’t do much better relieving, surrendering an addition seven hits, and three runs (one earned) in just two innings of work. Danny Herrera and Ryota Igarashi combined for two scoreless, but the damage was done.
And despite collecting ten hits, the Mets were only able to convert three runs. Ruben Tejada, Angel Pagan, Jason Bay, and Nick Evans all enjoyed multi-hit performances. Evans (double), Wright (triple), Pagan (triple), and Bay (homerun) all smacked extra-base hits.
The loss dropped the Mets down to 68-71.
