  • Neil Walker was 2-3 with a run scored and a triple.
  • Steven Matz pitched 5.2 innings allowing only 1 run and 1 hit which came off of the bat of Nationals first baseman Clint Robinson. Matz issued 4 walks along with 5 strikeouts.
  • The Mets bullpen struggled this afternoon as Logan Verrett, and Jim Henderson combined allowed 4 hits, and 3 runs in 1.1 innings pitched. Jerry Blevins was also charged with the blown save by allowing Henderson’s inherited runners to score.
  • SS Asdrubal Cabrera did not play as expected today. He went 3-4 in a minor league game today instead and will be in tomorrow’s lineup.
  • Interesting fact, Nationals RHP Yusmeiro Petit was included with 1B Mike Jacobs in the Carlos Delgado trade to the Marlins back in 2005.

 

  • The Mets go to Jupiter to face the St. Louis Cardinals tomorrow afternoon, with a 1:05 pm et start time. The game can be seen if you have an MLB.tv subscription or heard on WOR 710 AM.
