- You can't ask much more out of Nelson Figueroa, who filled in for Mike Pelfrey and pitched better than Pelfrey in either of the latter's two starts this season. Three runs in six innings was enough to keep the Mets in the game.
- The Mets left ten more men on base tonight, six of them in scoring position. The clutch hitter may be a myth but clutch hitting is very real and very lacking on the Mets' part so far this season.
- Omir Santos: still better than Brian Schneider.
- Fernando Tatis was fine at second base but less so at the plate. He has 0.0 hits this season.
- David Wright went hitless for the first time this season but looked generally underwhelming at the plate for the twelfth time.
- Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and Daniel Murphy reached base three times apiece; Beltran and Reyes both have .400+ on-base percentages.
