Well it’s starting to become an all too familiar sight. Mets lose another series, making it six in a row. Seems like old times (i.e. 2002-2004) as they’re now only six games above .500
Oliver Perez got the start tonight and did not pitch well, allowing 4 runs, 5 walks in 5+ innings, including a 2 out, 2 run homer to Tori Hunter in the to give the Twins 3-2 lead on the 5th.
The relief came on and was anything but, allowing 3 more runs in the 6th to extend the lead 6-2. From there it was lights out as the sleep-walking lineup of the Mets went down quietly. The only positive of the evening was Carlos Beltran who ripped 3 hits. Other than that, it was another lack luster performance.Fortunately for the Mets, the Phillies and Braves continue to lose as well.
