Dodgers 9 - Mets 1
Played Wednesday, June 13, 2007
I think we're all seeing the dreary sameness that permeates all of the recent losses, rendering these recaps a somewhat repetitive and masochistic quality. The Mets manage to score fairly early in the game and then the offense goes to sleep. They let opposing pitchers off the hook with low pitch count innings. Now the starting pitching, which has been great for most of the season, is starting to show the strain of trying to carry the team.
Case in point was Jorge Sosa last night. Although his control wasn't quite as it good as it has been at other times this year, he pitched well into the fifth inning. The a home run opened the gates to a bad inning, he stumbled again in the next, and the game was essentially over after six.

The Mets have to find a way to rekindle their offense. They need to learn how to draw a walk again and how to scratch out some runs when balls aren't sailing over the fence. As for me, I'm sadly grateful that there is no game tonight. I need a break from watching them lose the same game over and over.
