Pretty ugly all around.
Ike Davis’ catch. If you didn’t see it, watch it here. A Web Gem, I think.
Rod Barajas went yard in the second inning. The Mets only hit until the sixth, Barajas drove one deep to left field, his third of the year. He has more home runs than he has walks: three to none.
The Bad & Ugly
The pitching. Nine runs, eight earned against Oliver Perez, Manny Acosta, Raul Valdes and Hisanori Takahashi. Perez wasn’t awful, but the bullpen was. Just yuck. No one was on point and the Cubs, who have only scored more runs than Houston, made them pay.
Mets pitchers walked nine Cubs.
The Mets managed only two hits off of Carlos Silva.
Jeff Francoeur is 0-for-his-last-22 and only saw eight pitches in four at-bats.
Ike for his catch.
The Mets and Cubs finish it out tomorrow night, as Johan Santana takes the mound for a 7:10 p.m. start.
