The New York Mets drop final game in Montreal

The New York Mets were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon.  The game took

place at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Canada.  The fans once again packed the place, this time to

the tune of 50,000 plus.  If there were ever a chance based on attendance I would say Montreal

would get a team back.  They drew close to 100,000 for the two games there this weekend.  Daisuke

Matsuzaka pitched five scoreless innings and then was optioned to AAA after the game.  The

offense only produced two hits. 

Matsuzaka pitched five scoreless giving up five hits and he struck out eight.  Kyle Farnsworth pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout, Jose Valverde pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a walk and John Lannan pitched to one batter and retired him.  Cody Satterwhite pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run with a strikeout and he also took the loss.  Adam Kolarek pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run. 

Eric Young Jr. had a hit and drew a walk, Daniel Murphy had a hit and Ike Davis drew a walk.  Murphy was caught stealing and Curtis Granderson had an outfield assist.   The Mets finished the exhibition schedule and will now head home to New York.  They will open the season on Monday afternoon against the Washington Nationals.  Dillon Gee will get the start as Jon Niese and Matt Harvey are both injured.
