Ugh… Jeurys Familia working in his third inning of relief, hit Hank Conger with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to give the Los Angeles Angels a 5-4 victory over the Mets in the series opener on Friday night.

Here’s the skinny…

Travis d’Arnaud hit his first home run of the season to pull the Mets to a 2-2 tie. He last homered 110 at-bats ago…

Josh Satin started at first base and ripped a two-run double to give Mets a 4-2 lead at the time…

In his third start of the season, Dillon Gee lasted just 5.2 innings, walked four, allowed six hits including a pair of homers and failed to hold a two-run lead. I’ve said this twice before during Gee’s last two starts… Gee is a solid pitcher, but his effectiveness vanishes the third time through a lineup… Why can’t Terry get that through his thick skull?

Though I was shocked to see him after throwing two innings the night before, Carlos Torres was amazing again getting four big outs, but than Collins used three more relievers to pitch just one inning – the eighth…

Enter Familia who then had to carry the full load from the ninth inning on… He was done in by his wildness after his first two tiring innings which saw him throw one 96-98 mph fastball after another… This kid was throwing gas, but also looked gassed when he came out for the 11th inning…

Exactly what purpose does John Lannan serve in our bullpen? Someone please remind me…

Anyway, Jon Niese makes his second start of the season on Saturday and opposes Jered Weaver for the Angels in a 9:05 PM start.

I’m dead tired… Good night, folks…
