Rockies 6 – Mets 5 April 14, 2010

New York Mets starting pitcher Jonathan Niese throws against the Colorado Rockies in their MLB baseball game in Denver

http://cdn.pis.picapp.com/IamProd/PicAppPIS/JavaScript/PisV4.jsThe Mets lost their fourth straight game tonight in 10 innings to the Rockies. They have to try to salvage one game in Colorado tomorrow afternoon. The story of the game was that the Mets got another bad start from Jon Niese, battled back to tie it up in the ninth, then lost it on a homer in the tenth.

Niese was pretty bad giving up 5 runs in 5 IP on 99 pitches and hitting two batters. It was just ugly. And it’s even worse following up some rotten starts over the last few days.

The worst part of the game was that the Mets got two men on in the tenth with one out and couldn’t bring a run home. The Mets just can’t seem to hit with runners in scoring position. As a team, the Mets are hitting .180 with runners in scoring position.

Jenry Mejia started the tenth inning and promptly gave up the game losing home run to Chris Iannetta, the first batter he faced. I know that can happen to anyone, but maybe Mejia isn’t ready for this kind of pressure.

It’s another tough loss and they’ll play one more in Colorado tomorrow.
