Mets Kick One Away to the Cards

Cardinals 11 - Mets 3
Three Mets errors by Chris Woodward, David Wright and Kaz Matsui let in 5 unearned runs as the Mets fell to the Cardinals today in St. Lucie. Jeremi Gonzales, one of many candidates for fifth starter or long reliever, was victimized by 2 of the unearned runs, but he didn't pitch very well, either. In 3 innings he gave up 5 hits and 1 earned run. Matsui's error led to Mike Pelfrey being charged with 3 unearned runs in 3 innings pitched. He allowed 3 hits and a walk while striking out 3.

Billy Wagner, Chad Bradford and Henry Owens followed, all tossed gasoline on the fire in one-inning stints. Wagner and Owens gave up 2 runs each while Bradford allowed one run.

At the plate David Wright and Lastings Milledge contributed two-hit games. Jeff Keppinger contributed a double and 2 RBIs, Xavier Nady drove in the other run.

The Mets will split their squad tomorrow. One squad will stay home and face the Marlins, with Jose Lima scheduled to start and Bartolome Fortunato, Heath Bell and Royce Ring following. The other squad will travel to face the Braves with John Maine starting and Alay Soler, Mitch Wylie, Juan Perez and Anderson Garcia scheduled to follow.

That's funny, Ed. I'll throw up a link to it next time I post.
