New York Mets Record: 47-40
Current Streak: L3
The New York Mets were facing the Atlanta Braves when they faced a problem. They Could not see the ball! Tim Hudson,The pitcher for the Braves,was throwing almost blurry fastballs to the stumbling Mets. And that showed, As the Mets 2-5 hitters went a combined 0-12 with 9 runners left on base. Mike Pelfrey, the pitcher for the Mets, could not help eiether letting 3 ER in only 4 innings pitched. Pelf got screwed in the 5th when Troy Glaus and Omar Infante got RBI singles. Then Yunel Escobar Grounded into a double play,and Troy Glaus Scored. Then,as of things haven't already gotten sour for him and Elmer Dessens, The PITCHER Tim Hudson doubled to Left, scoring Eric Hinske to make it 4-0 Braves. As for the Mets Offense, Tim Hudson seemed like a Roy Halladay to them. Hudson threw seven innings for the NL East leading Braves only allowed 4 or less hits in this Roy Halladay-impersonating performance. Opinion: If we wanna get back on track we need to start having plate discipline and getting valuble hits in clutch situations. And with the Phils right on our tails,we need to start winning valuble games. Injury Update: Carlos Beltran to return in the cleanup spot on Thursday vs the Giants. Jose Reyes out of Midsummer classic with oblique injury.
