Too little, too late.
Hisanori Takahashi. He tossed six scoreless innings, allowing five hits. He walked only one, striking out five. Well done, Taka. Well done, indeed.
Bay and Davis in the ninth. Back-to-back doubles plated the Mets only run. Yipee.
The Bad & Ugly
Four hits. Four. Two of them – the only extra base hits – came in the bottom on the ninth inning.
5-6-7 of the Mets order – Wright, Pagan, Barajas – each struck out twice.
Elmer Dessens. Coming up for the DL’d John Maine today, Jerry Manuel turned to Dessens as the first out of the bullpen and two runs later, partly thanks to an error, the Mets were down and couldn’t recover.
Tomorrow night, a 7:10 p.m. game.
