Both starting pitchers, Zack Wheeler and Tom Koehler, did not factor into the decision. Zack went 6 innings, giving up no runs on 2 hits but 5 walks, with 7 strikeouts. Koehler kept the Mets to no runs on 2 hits and 1 walk, striking out 5 in 8 innings. Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless 7th, striking out 2.
Carlos Torres pitched a scoreless 8th, but led off the 9th giving up a leadoff hit to Giancarlo Stanton, whom Wheeler had gotten to ground into 2 double plays early on. With a couple members of the bullpen working with aches, it was Torres’ inning to get out of, but he got behind Casey McGehee, though ran the count to 3-2. It didn’t matter, because Carlos walked him soon thereafter, and with no out, the team who has walked off on the Mets 6 times out of 13 losses since Marlins Park opened was set up for another one. They got the 1st out with a Garrett Jones long fly ball to right field, but that got Stanton over to 3rd. Terry Collins then changed to Kyle Farmsworth to attempt to bring the game to extras. It was time to take on Marcel Ozuna, and he swung on a 2-1, hitting it to Juan Lagares in center field. His throw to the plate was not strong enough, and the Mets had been walked off on in South Florida for the 7th time since 2012.
The Mets have not scored in 23 innings.
I just…I can’t….fire Terry Collins….correct the roster…just….gah.
