New York Mets lose 5-4 to the Miami Marlins

The Mets were defeated by the Miami Marlins by the score of 5-4 on Thursday afternoon. Mike Pelfrey started for the Mets and did not pitch well at all. They didn’t have any regulars in the lineup. Lucas May had two hits and two RBI to pace the offense. 
Pelfrey pitched 2 2/3 innings giving up six hits and four runs with two walks. Miguel Batista pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up one walk, Frank Francisco took the loss in pitching an inning. He gave up a hit, run a walk and he struck out one. Jon Rauch pitched two innings giving up no hits and no runs and he struck out two, Tim Byrdak pitched a perfect inning and Armando Rodriguez gave up two hits in his one inning of work.

Nieuwenhuis had a hit, Dan Dekker had a hit and Vinny Rotino had a hit. Jason Bay had a walk, Ike Davis had a hit and two walks and Lucas May had two hits and two RBI. Mike Baxter had a hit and an RBI, Adam Loewen had a hit and an RBI and Ronny Cedeno had a walk. Omar Quintanilla had a hit. May had a double, Loewen had a homerun. The Mets were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and they left eight men on base.

The Mets will take on the Braves in Orlando with Dillon Gee making the start. One of their top prospects Matt Harvey will pitch in relief. Andres Torres has a tight glute but they don’t think it is serious. Johan Santana threw another bullpen, felt and looked good. The Mets say he is ready for his next start on Sunday.
