After a lengthy rain delay, the Mets took on the Brewers tonight, and lost the game by a score of 6-1.
The Mets were never really in the game as the Brewers scored their first run off Mike Pelfrey in the first inning, and later tacked on five more before the Mets rebounded with their first and only run in the bottom of the seventh on a Josh Thole RBI.
Pelfrey lasted only five innings, giving up a hearty 8 hits and 4 walks (that’s a WHIP of 2.40). If you’re looking for a pitching highlight, Igarashi pitched the 9th inning, only allowing a long walk, with no runs surrendered.
The Mets were 1-7 with runners in scoring position, and their 2-4 batters were 0-14, which is a spell for disaster no matter who you’re facing, let alone one of the hottest teams in baseball.
Tomorrow at 4:10pm, the Amazin’s look to rebound as Chris Capuano takes on Randy Wolf.
On a positive note, all tickets to tonight’s game can be redeemed for tickets to the Mets-Nationals series in mid-September. So…there’s that.
