The highlight of the day for the Mets was unquestionably Chris Young's outing: 6 innings pitched, no runs allowed, 3 strikeouts, and no walks. While spring training success doesn't guarantee anything, the Mets have to be happy with what they've seen thus far from Young and Chris Capuano.  

In terms of pitching, things went downhill after Young departed. Bobby Parnell allowed a hit and a walk, got a strikeout, and then gave way to Michael O'Connor. O'Connor allowed both inherited runners and several more of his own to score. Pedro Beato was called upon with two outs in the inning, and he put out the fire. Taylor Buchholz pitched a 1-2-3 8th inning, which turned out to be the last inning of work for the bullpen.

There weren't really any highlights at the plate this afternoon as the Mets didn't score a run. As for the second basemen, Brad Emaus was 1-for-2 with a double, Justin Turner was 0-for-1, and Daniel Murphy was 0-for-2 as he took over for Ike Davis at first base. Luis Hernandez got the start at short, but he was 0-for-3.  

The updated stats for those guys:

Player AB AVG OBP SLG INN E
Emaus 31 0.226 0.333 0.290 51 2
Murphy 46 0.326 0.354 0.457 50 2
Turner 34 0.265 0.286 0.324 33 0
Hernandez 22 0.273 0.333 0.364 3 0

The Mets host the Braves tomorrow at 1:10 pm, and the game can be seen on SNY.
