Mets Morning News: Oh, Jenrry! Mejia Struggles To Find The Strike Zone In Defeat.

This is not photoshopped.

Meet the Mets

A lead of 4-1 in the fourth inning quickly morphed into a 6-4 deficit, as Jenrry Mejia did not have it in his first MLB start since 2010 and the Mets fell to the Brewers 9-6. It was an ugly start for Mejia, as he allowed 5 runs on 6 hits over 3 innings. He walked 5 while striking out none and left without recording an out in a dreadful fourth inning. The highlight for Mejia was likely the squeeze bunt that he put down in the top of the fourth inning. On offense, Ike Davis and Lucas Duda had big days. Davis cracked three hits and added a two-run ninth inning home run, while Duda went 2-5 with an RBI double.

The Mets send Chris Young to the hill as they look to take the rubber game of their series with the Brewers. The Brewers will throw Wily Peralta. Game time is at 2:10 PM and you can catch the action on SNY.

The reviews on Jenrry Mejia's return to the majors as a starter last night were mixed, as the righty showed good pure stuff but a lack of command.

Could concussions have played a role in Jason Bay's struggles? Terry Collins doesn't rule it out.

Collins says he wants to see more than just velocity from the team's young arms.

Daniel Murphy has made some large strides in his defensive play at second base.

Yesterday At AA

This Date In Mets' History -- September 15th

Around the NL East

The Phillies lost to the Astros 5-0 on Saturday evening, while the Braves beat the Nationals 5-4. Finally, the Marlins defeated the Reds 6-4 and they're just a game behind the Mets. YIKES! At least Jose Reyes made some history, with the 500,000th error in MLB history.

Around the Majors

It was a big news day for the Dodgers. First, they agreed to a contract extension with GM Ned Colletti. Then, they scratched lefty Clayton Kershaw from his start and it sounds like he might possibly need season ending hip surgery. Finally, they beat the Cardinals 4-3 in walk-off fashion to pull even with them for the 2nd Wild Card.

The Yankees beat the Rays 5-3, while the Orioles fell to the A's 5-2. That means the Yankees have a one game lead on the O's in the division, though the Orioles have control of the 2nd wild card.

Yu Darvish became the first MLB rookie since Daisuke Matsuzaka to strike out 200 batters.

The Rockies will return to a traditional five-man rotation next season despite rumblings that they'd stick with their current four-man, 75-pitch arrangement.
