Marlins 10, Mets 3

Posted: June 28, 2010 in Mets

The Mets were blasted tonight in Puerto Rico, falling to the Marlins 10-3. The only good thing you can say about this game was Jason Bay hit a pair of home runs.
R.A. Dickey (6-1) finally lost a game for the Mets, you knew he wasn’t going to stay undefeated the rest of the year. He was hit around in the third inning, when the Marlins scored four of their five runs. Dickey lasted five innings, and the Mets’ bullpen had their worst performance in awhile. Fernando Nieve and Ryota Igarashi combined to give up five runs, with all the runs coming on three Marlins homers. The stadium in Puerto Rico is a bandbox, smaller than any stadium in the majors, even Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park. So the ball was flying out of there, with five home runs hit by the two teams.
The Mets (43-33) drop to 1 1/2 games behind the first-place Braves in the NL East. They take on the Marlins again Puerto Rico Tuesday, with Hisanori Takahashi (6-3) opposing Nate Robertson. Expect runs aplenty.
