Game 152: Mets Lose Pitching Battle, 1-0

By Unknown author

After handing the Braves their backside the game before, the Mets could only scatter four hits against Tim Hudson and Craig Kimbrel last night. Hudson hurled eight shut-out innings, including just two walks and ten strikeouts. Kimbrel easily shut the door for the forty-fifth time with three strikeouts.

On the flip side, Mets starter R.A. Dickey baffled the Braves hitters (just three hits and one earned-run), but also walked six batters. And who better to spoil the party than Chipper Jones, who smacked a RBI-double–the sole run of the game.

Only Lucas Duda, Josh Thole, and Ruben Tejada could figure out Hudson–and none of which recorded extra-base hits.

The Mets fall to 72-80 on the season.
