Marlins 7 – Mets 6 June 29, 2010

New York Mets starting pitcher Hisanori Takahashi throws a pitch to the Florida Marlins during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in San Juan June 29, 2010. REUTERS/Ana Martinez (PUERTO RICO - Tags: SPORT BASEBALL) Feliciano gave it up in the bottom of the ninth after a great comeback by the Mets in the top of the inning to score 2 runs to tie it. They overcame another horrible start by Hisanori Takahashi who gave up 6 runs in 5.2 IP. All of the runs against him were scored with two outs in the third inning including a grand slam by Hanley Ramirez. There are very serious questions about Takahashi’s viability as a starting pitcher. This is his fourth awful start now this season.

The Mets offense was more than solid with 12 hits and 2 walks. David Wright had the big game going 3 for 4 and raising his average to .310. Chris Carter had a big pinch hit double in the ninth that spurred the rally that tied the game. Marlins right fielder Mike Stanton looked like a fish out of water in the field, excuse the pun. But he’s a butcher in the outfield and that helped the Mets on a couple of occasions including Carter’s double.

The Mets drop the first two games of the series and try to avoid the sweep tomorrow in Puerto Rico.
