The New York Mets get their first game out of the way

The New York Mets lost to the Washington Nationals by the score of 3-1 on Monday evening.  There wasn't much offense for the Mets.  The pitching did a pretty good job though. 

Dillon Gee started the game and pitched two innings giving up two hits and one run with a walk and a strikeout.  Matt Harvey pitched two innings.  He didn't give up a hit or a run but walked three and struck out one.  Frank Francisco took the loss, he pitched one inning giving up two hits and one run.  Daniel Herrera pitched an inning giving up two hits and striking out one.  Tim Byrdak pitched an inning giving up a walk and Miguel Batista pitched two innings giving up two hits and one run with a walk and two strikeouts. 

Andrus Torres had a hit and a walk.  It was a good start for him out of the leadoff spot where he will probably be come Opening Day.  Daniel Murphy had a hit and an RBI, Ike Davis and Josh Satin each had a hit.  Mike Baxter had a hit, Lucas May had a hit and Ruben Tejada had two hits. 

Torres had a stolen base.  The Mets were 2-11 and left eight men on base in the game.  Satin, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jordany Valdespin and Mike Baxter each had a stolen base in the game.  Cedeno was caught stealing.  Turner and Nieuwenhuis each had an error and Baxter had an outfield assist. 

The Mets will play split squad games tomorrow.  Johan Santana will be getting on the mound in Port St. Lucie.  It will be his first game action in quite a while and the team and media will mostly all be there to watch it.
