In losing to the Dodgers 3-2 last night at least the Mets made a game of it. Kaz Matsui led the game off with a homer and got a hit in the 9th against Eric Gagne to keep the game alive (even though his team mates weren’t able to score against the closer who hasn’t blown a save since September 2002). Steve Trachsel pitched pretty well despite giving up 2 homers including one to Dave Roberts in an epic 12 pitch at bat. (Roberts just kept fouling them back until he got one he could handle.) Milton Bradley made a few good catches in center field including a leaping grab to bring a Mike Cameron homer back in from over the wall.
