Thread: Mets (67-70) vs. Nationals (64-73)

  • Sharebar

Here is this afternoon’s Met lineup:

  1. Jose Reyes SS Ruben Tejada SS (Reyes is fine, he’s just getting a day off)
  2. Justin Turner 2B
  3. Lucas Duda RF
  4. David Wright 3B
  5. Angel Pagan CF
  6. Jason Bay LF
  7. Josh Satin 1B
  8. Mike Nickeas C
  9. Mike Pelfrey RHP

vs. Livan Hernandez

Talking points:

  • The Mets lost last night 8-7 in D.C. They were beating the Nationals 7-6 going into the ninth, but Bobby Parnell allowed Washington to rally and allowed the walk-off single to right field just out of the reach of Lucas Duda.
  • Mike Piazza turns 42 today. He hit .296 with 220 home runs as a Met in parts of eight seasons.

My take:

  • Last night’s loss: The only positive part thing I got from this game was the offense coming back. Gee was awful. Parnell couldn’t shut the door. Just not a great game.
  • Mike Piazza‘s birthday: Happy birthday to the future hall of famer!
