Torres Spins Quality Start, But Mets Offense Falters In 4-2 Loss To Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Brewers (72-87) defeated the New York Mets (73-86) by the score of 4-2 tonight at Citi Field.
For all the hell I gave you in the beginning of the year, Carlos Torres… I respect the work you’ve put in for this team in 2013. A depth signing turned into a guy who really put in some solid hours for the Mets, finishing the year with a 3.44 ERA in 86.1 innings across a mix of work out of the pen and in spot starts. He turned in one more quality start for the Mets today, going six innings and allowing three runs.
He was taken deep twice in the first inning for two of his four hits allowed, but he really didn’t seem phased and breezed through the next five innings without allowing a run. The only other Milwaukee run crossed the plate when Martin Maldonado crushed a pitch off Scott Atchison for a solo home run in the seventh.
The Mets didn’t really show much offensive prowess out there tonight, although they did scatter eight hits. Their only extra base hits were doubles, one by Lucas Duda and another by Daniel Murphy. Murphy’s hit was his 38th double on the year, so he’s just two away from 40 doubles in a season — a nice little number. Turner had a two-hit game out there, including an RBI single that accounted for half of the Mets run production. Juan Lagares brought in the other run with a sacrifice fly.
Gonzalez Germen picked up four outs cleanly, including a strikeout, after Pedro Feliciano picked up an out of his own. This game was pretty much an open-and-shut case, as the Mets only had three at-bats with RISP the entire game. There are only two games left in the season now, with Aaron Harang on the mound tomorrow and Jon Niese toeing the rubber on Sunday for the finale.
