The Mets six game winning streak finally came to an end tonight in a close game in DC. The Mets offense was inexplicably stymied by Livan Hernandez for 8 innings. He only allowed 7 hits and 2 earned runs. The Mets made a nice comeback attempt against Drew Storen in the ninth but it wasn’t enough.
Chris Capuano had a very shaky start and isn’t showing that he can consistently give a solid starting effort. He allowed 10 hits and 4 runs over 5.2 innings. Pedro Beato had another fantastic effort going 2 scoreless innings and still hasn’t allowed a run this season.
The Mets head to Philly for a three game series starting tomorrow night.
