No Support for Maine

Diamondbacks 5 - Mets 1
Played Friday, June 1, 2007

On a night when Brandon Webb was on his game and the Mets lineup featured Damion Easley in the 3-hole, the odds were stacked against John Maine. One bad pitch cost him the game, but it was the best we've seen from Maine in almost a month. It was also the first time all year he didn't walk anyone.

Meanwhile, after a solid return to action against the Giants, Guillermo Mota was underwhelming his second time out. Although he struck out 3 batters in his 2 innings of work, he allowed 4 hits, including a huge 3-run home run to Stephen Drew that basically sealed the deal for the Snakes. It was only the second HR on the season for Drew, who has been slugging an anemic .338 in just under 200 ABs this season.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.
