Messy Mets

New York Mets Record: 60-61
Current Streak: L1
It All looked good for the New York Mets going into the bottom of the 7th Inning in Thursday night's game vs the Houston Astros. Pat Misch,who had only allowed one hit coming into the inning was on FIRE! But after 2 bloop hits by Angel Sanchez and Hunter Pence,things would only get worse from there from the already sloppy New York Mets. The Mets have only Scored 93 runs since the long gone All-Star break,the last in the majors. After Carlos' Lee's HR in that 7th inning,we kept it at 93 runs. The Astros would eventually win the the game off that One-Hit Wonder. My Moral of this post is that it seems that we cannot give our pitchers any run support. It's like when a team takes the lead from us,we basically allow them to steal that win from us. The Mets have probably had the most "Quality Starts" in the majors this year too. But our hitting is terrible.
