Too many runners left on base dooms the Mets.
The Mini Recap
Nelson Figueroa had a decent outing, and kept the Mets in the game. Jeff Suppan scattered eight hits over six plus innings, allowing only two runs. The offense just couldn’t click, as they left 10 runners on base.
Carlos Delgado drove in one with an RBI double in the first and Jose Reyes drove in Omir Santos in the seventh. The Mets hit two triples and three doubles. Reyes and Daniel Murphy each had three hits, while Carlos Beltran and Santos had two. Santos hit a double and a triple in his first Mets start.
It was a problem of leaving too many ducks on the pond and not coming through with runners in scoring position, a problem that plagued them all last year.
