Mets Bullpen Implodes In Another Extra Inning Loss To Nats 8-2

For the second game in a row, the Mets go to extra innings, and the bullpen implodes. This time it was Beato again who falters and ruins Chris Young’s solid start as Mets lose 8-2 in ten innings. Chris Young pitched the game the Mets needed him to pitch. Arguably his best start of the […]
