Click here for a recap of last night’s game.
The Mets 5-0 loss to the Pirates last night was sad. It’s bad enough that they lost and hurt their playoff chances but they only managed 3 hits the whole game. In fairness, last night starter for Pittsburgh, Zach Duke, has been tearing up the league since he came up from the minors in July. He’s 6-0 with a 1.87 ERA and has been the only bright spot in the Pirates lousy season. I’m not happy with the loss (you can never be happy with a loss) but to know that the guy who beat the Mets last night has beaten everybody else make sit a little easier to take even if it makes the rest of the season a little bit tougher.
