Wow. Nothing good to say, really. Eddie Kunz pitched a scoreless inning in his big league debut, so that was nice. The Mets' offense actually did a solid job of getting on base and and a downright pitiful job of getting those runners in. Eleven runners left on base as a team; twenty-four left on individually. Twenty-four! The Mets' top four hitters reached base ten times and had zero runs to show for it.
The Mets went 1-5 on their road trip through Florida and Houston and are just 7-9 since the All-Star break. They've gone from first place to third in that time, and the bullpen has completely fallen apart. As I write this, the Phillies just took a 5-2 lead over the Cardinals and are a couple of innings away from a three-game lead over the Mets.
