Stinson Blows Game In Extras, Mets Lose 10-6 To Cubs
After a bad start by Miguel Batista, the Mets came back only to have Josh Stinson and Ryota Igarashi blow the game in the 11th inning, and the Mets lost 10-6 to the Chicago Cubs
Miguel Batista had his first poor outing as a Met, going five innings, allowing four runs on five hits walking three and striking out one. Batista was not helped by the Mets defense, as David Wright made his third error in two days. Batista couldn’t find control, and when he gave up hits they were for extra bases.
Today saw a huge bullpen day, with D.J. Carrasco, Tim Byrdak, Pedro Beato, Daniel Herrera, Manny Acosta, Josh Stinson, Ryota Igarashi and Dale Thayer came out. Everyone but Stinson and Igarashi was effective, but Stinson was hit hard and walked two to not record an out.
The offense today existed in spurts, with runs being scored in the first, sixth, eighth and 11th. Jason Pridie hit a home run in the eleventh, but by then the Mets were already down six, so it just closed the deficit. The offense today wasn’t stifled, but stranded runners, 26 to be exact.
Jose Reyes – 1 for 5 with a walk and a strikeout. Jose dropped his average to .332
Jason Pridie – 1 for 2 with a two-run HR.
David Wright – 0 for 5 with two strikeouts and a walk. Tough last two days for David.
The ineffective bullpen work of Stinson/Igarashi
GOAT of the Game
Josh Stinson takes the cake in this one. Not getting an out and giving up four runs will do that for a player.
The Mets will continue their home series, playing against the Washington Nationals at 7:10 P.M. Ross Detweiler will pitch for the Nationals, and R.A. Dickey for the Mets.
