Hisanori Takahashi finally came back with a good start despite the loss going 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs. He allowed 1 run in the first inning and I was thinking “Here we go again”. But he recovered nicely and only allowed 3 hits and 2 walks in the game.
The Mets offense is the problem again. They only had 5 hits and 2 walks as a team. Surprisingly, Jeff Franoeur was the player of the game going 2 for 4. He was telling reporters before the game that he would welcome a trade for more playing time.
The misery continues for Mets fans as we watch our hopes of postseason play disappear before our eyes.
