Young & Olson Torched In 13-0 Loss To Marlins
Chris Young had by far his worst outing of the season, and a struggling bullpen as well as a lack of offense sealed the Mets fate in their 13-0 loss on Wednesday
Chris Young was absolutely obliterated today, going four and one-third innings allowing seven runs on seven hits with three home runs in his outing. Young walked three and fanned four, but Young just didn’t have it today and the free-swinging Marlins capitalized on some poor pitch location. If Young has another poor start, the possibility of Jeremy Hefner and Young swapping rotation spots on an opponent by opponent basis is impossible.
The bullpen was overworked today, with Ramon Ramirez and Jeremy Hefner combining for two and two-third innings, allowing no hits, walking one and striking out two. After Hefner however, things got ugly. Garrett Olson went one-third of an inning allowing four runs on three hits while walking one. Not a great way to make a Mets debut Garrett. Manny Acosta went two thirds of an inning, giving up a hit and striking out one. Frank Francisco came out for mop-up duty, and was not very good – like two runs on two hits with a strikeout in one-third of an inning bad. Josh Edgin was forced into the game and pitched two-thirds of an inning, striking out one.
Poor, poor pitching day. Not much else to say…unless some offense would come.
Which it didn’t. The Mets managed five total hits, two by David Wright, but did draw six walks lead by Ruben Tejada. Tejada also had a throwing error, his ninth overall error on the year. This was just a bad game, that got out of hand uncontrollably fast.
On Deck: The Mets will finish the series at 12:10 tomorrow, sending R.A. Dickey to the mound against Josh Johnson.
