Click here for a recap of last night’s game.
The Mets salvaged one game from their series against the Rockies last night. To lose 2 out of 3 at Coors was not a good thing and the team should be ashamed of themselves.
VÃctor Zambrano (7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 5 SO) had another good outing. And finally seems to be on the right path under pitching coach Rick Peterson who, upon being consulted on the trade that brought Zambrano to the Mets, claimed he could fix Zambrano’s problem alot quicker than this. The offense had a great night with all the starting position players having at least one hit and one run scored – except for Doug Mientkiewicz, who went 1 for 3 but didn’t come around to score.
The Mets should not be disillusioned by the win. The fact remains that they lost 2 out of 3 to the worst team in the league and that is not how you win a pennant muh less a division.
