After briefly taking a lead in the first inning, the Mets were blown out in Anaheim by the Angels. Bartolo Colon had a brutal start, allowing back-to-back-to-back solo home runs and then a pair of doubles for a total of four runs in the first inning. He gave up nine runs on eleven hits in just five innings of work, including a fourth home run later in his start before giving way to the bullpen.
The Mets scored just once in the first and once in the fifth. Scott Rice gave up a couple more runs in the sixth, Jeurys Familia threw a scoreless seventh, and John Lannan gave up three runs on three hits, one of which was a home run, in the eighth.
And in the midst of all that, David Wright and Daniel Murphy were ejected for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Toby Basner, who had clearly frustrated the Mets all afternoon, from the bench in the seventh inning.
