It’s almost exciting watching how many ways the Mets will find to lose a game. Today it came via the grand slam.
Bobby Parnell surrendered a grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning, ending his day. Parnell allowed eight earned runs on nine hits and two walks. He lasted only 4 2-3 innings, needing 110 pitches.
Is the Parnell experiment over yet? Or will the Mets just let him take his licks in the rotation?
Ken Takahashi pitched 1-3 of an inning, allowing one run to score.
Lance Broadway made his Mets debut, pitching three innings and allowing two earned runs on four hits. He walked one and struck out three.
The Mets got a pair of two-run doubles from Jeff Francoeur and Brian Schneider respectively.
Just a game closer to ending 2009.
