http://view.picapp.com//JavaScripts/OTIjs.jsThe Mets lost the game and the series tonight despite another solid performance by Jon Niese. The problem was that Bronson Arroyo was better. Niese went 7.2 IP giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and 1 walk. He also had 8 strikeouts but did give up 2 home runs.

The Mets offense did put together 8 hits and 1 walk but just couldn’t make it translate into runs. Once again, Angel Pagan had a big game with the bat. He was 2 for 4 with a solo homer in the first off Arroyo and that was all of the Mets scoring. Josh Thole was 2 for 3 also.

The Mets lose two out of three to the Reds and, unfortunately, the Braves won again tonight over the Phillies.
