The Mets lose to Miami in a rain shortened game 4-2

The New York Mets took on the Miami Marlins at home in Port St. Lucie, Florida on Sunday afternoon. The game was called after five inning because of rain and the Marlins defeated the Mets by the score of 4-2. Johan Santana pitched for the Mets and was pretty good, the most important thing for him is that he continues to be healthy and progress. Jon Rauch had a terrible outing, blowing a save and taking the loss. Adam Loewen had a good game with two hits as he attempts to make it as a reserve outfielder. Loewen is an interesting story as he was a pitcher and then gave that up and is trying to make it as an outfielder. 
Santana pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up two hits, one run, one walk and two strikeouts. Chris Schwinden pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up one hit and Rauch pitched one inning giving up four hits, three runs, a walk and a strikeout.

Ruben Tejada had a hit, Ronny Cedeno had a walk and Daniel Murphy had a hit. Jason Bay had a hit, Loewen had two hits and Josh Satin had an RBI. Josh Thole had a hit and an RBI, Lucas May had a hit. Loewen and May each had a double. The Mets were 2-7 with runners in scoring position and they left four men on base. Cedeno and Loewen each made an error. The Mets are now 3-5 on the spring. The Mets will travel to Lakeland, Florida to take on the Detroit Tigers on Monday afternoon.

The story of the day though was the Mets and their rib cage and oblique injuries.  David Wright is flying back to New York to be examined and possibly receive a cortisone injection.  They have a bunch of other guys with oblique injuries and manager Terry Collins is trying to get to the bottom of this.  This will be the storyline until someone figures it out.
