Turner Sets Record But Mets Get Bombed In 7-3 Loss
Mets took an early lead but just got completely out slugged by the Bronx Bombers. Capuano got hit hard in his start, bullpen gave up a run, and Reyes and Turner led the Mets to three runs. However, Mets lose game two of the Subway Series 7-3.
What looked like was going to be a good start to the game for the Mets in the first inning, quickly became mute once the sandbox of a ballpark came into play. Four homeruns were given up by Mets pitchers with only one of them possibly being a homerun that would count at Citi Field. Of course Capuano was completely out matched in the game. He went 5.1 innings giving up six runs on six hits, four homeruns, no walks and five strikeouts. He receives his fifth loss of the season and an ERA over five. However, if this was Citi Field, it would have been a completely different outcome as the Yankees only scored one run that didn’t come from a cheep homerun.
The bullpen comprised of the still perfect Pedro Beato as he pitched a hitless and scoreless 1.2 innings with one strikeout. Glad to have him back. Also, Buchholz pitched an inning giving up that sac-fly run.
Mets and Yankees both had only seven hits, but Mets only went 3-8 with RISP, the biggest problem this season for the offense.
Jose Reyes comprised of three of those hits and two of the runs scored for the Mets. Daniel Murphy had two hits and scored the other run for the Mets. RBIs came from Beltran, “Big Red” Justin Turner, and Jason Bay, despite Bay not having a hit in the game.
As my colleague mentioned, Justin Turner drove in a run for the seventh straight game during the first inning, setting a Mets rookie record. Congratulations to him. I wonder if Wright will turn into Wally Pipp?
F-Mart, Pridie, Bay, Thole, and Tejada all had 0-fers. Thole’s average is reaching the Mendoza line with a .205 average.
When the Yankees Stadium seemed to shrink with each homerun the Yankees hit.
Justin Turner for his RBI in the first setting a Mets rookie record.
Mike Pelfrey starts the rubber match for the Subway Series against the Yankees who will have rookie pitcher Ivan Nova on the mound for them. Game time is 1:05 PM on WPIX.
