Hansel Robles took the mound for the Mets on Wednesday night, after leaving the St. Lucie Opener last week with an apparent oblique injury. He showed no ill-effects of the injury, as he pitched 6.1 innings, holding the Cardinals to one run. Robles kept his team in the game all night, but was credited with his first loss, as the Mets’ offense was never able to get on track.
Kyle Hald pitched seven innings for the Cardinals, limiting the Mets to just three hits on the night. Matt Reynolds, Aderlin Rodriguez and Albert Cordero had the three hits for the Mets. Rodriguez had the only extra base hit for the Mets, and after his double, he was the only Met player in scoring position on the entire night.
Hamilton Bennett came in for the Mets, in relief, and pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, giving up no hits and striking out one. The St. Lucie pitching continues to dominate their opposition. The offense will look to get back on track tonight as they close out their three game series with the Palm Beach Cardinals.
