The Mini Recap
Livan Hernandez nearly turned in a quality start, allowing three runs over 5 1-3 innings. The Mets bullpen, actually just Sean Green, led the lead slip away.
The Mets bats, as usual, scored in the first inning, and couldn’t muster much after that. Gary Sheffield had a two-run triple in the first inning. Alex Cora and David Wright added RBIs in the second and fifth respectively.
