Another sloppy game costs the Mets.
The Mini Recap
Oliver Perez had four good innings and 2-3 of a bad inning. Four earned runs, one with Casey Fossum pitching, brought the Cardinals back to tie the game. J.J. Putz and a slip-and-fall by Daniel Murphy allowed St. Louis to score two in the 8th inning.
The Mets bats were there early, scoring four times in the first four innings. Then the bats went to sleep and they didn’t pick up a hit from the sixth inning on. You can’t win a game like that.
Just a sloppy, poorly played game by the Mets. They had a 4-0 lead and let is slip away. They just looked awful.
