After an inspiring win in Game 1 of the doubleheader this afternoon, the Mets came out quite flat in Game 2 and lost by a score of 5-0.
Robert Stock took the mound for the first time in the orange and blue, and fared much better than he did against the orange and blue last month. He tossed four solid innings, allowing 2 runs on four hits and two walks, with five strikeouts. His only real blemish was a two-run homer allowed to Manny Piña in the second inning.
Unfortunately, the Mets offense couldn’t back him up at all, getting shut down by Brett Anderson over four innings. They managed just three hits all game, all against Anderson. The Mets finally got something going in the fifth, when they loaded the bases with nobody out after three straight walks, but Brad Boxberger struck out 3 in a row to extricate the jam.
Drew Smith allowed another run on a homer in the sixth, and Miguel Castro surrendered two runs on another homer in the seventh.
Full recap to follow.
