D-Backs 3 – Mets 2 July 31, 2009

The Mets got their third straight solid start from Livan Hernandez tonight. He went 6 innings giving up only two solo homers. And he was pulled in the bottom of the sixth for a pinch hitter. Angel Berroa of all people. That one was hard to swallow. This guy is clearly not a big league player. He looks like an independent league player to me.

The Mets only offense came on two solo homers by Daniel Murphy and David Wright. The team managed only 4 hits all night but did have 7 walks.

The game hinged on Sean Green pitching in the eighth inning. He came in with one man on, hit a batter, then walked another to load the bases. Then he threw a wild pitch that allowed Justin Upton to score, and that was the game. It’s a terrible way to lose a game.
