Postgame: Mets 5 at Braves 9

March 3, 2010

Today, the Mets were defeated by the Atlanta Braves at Disney by a score of 9-5.

W: Johnny Venters (1-0)
L: Josh Stinson (0-1)

For a full recap and box score, click here.

Miche started and was good but errors in the 7th cost them 5 runs.

The Pitching:

  • Pat Miche started and pitched 3 good innings. He gave up no runs and 1 hit. He did walk 2 though. Even though he pitched pretty well, I really hope Niese gets the 5th starter spot and not Miche.
  • Eric Niesen then pitched 2 good innings.
  • Then things started to fall apart. Eddie Kunz came in with a 4-0 lead and walked the bases loaded to open up the inning. Freddie Freeman of the Braves then hit a RBI ground out, Jayson Heyward doubled and Yunel Escobar hit one off of Anderson Hernandez’s glove, the game was then tied. Kunz was then taken out and relieved by Josh Stinson.
  • Stinson got out of the 6th but then in the 7th gave up 5 runs but only 1 was earned.
  • Neal Musser  pitched a scoreless 8th but the Mets were already trailing 9-5.

The Hitting:

  • Angel Pagan drove in the first run of the day in the 5th with a single. He was 1 for 3.
  • The Mets scored 3 in the 6th off of Braves pitcher Steve Marek with RBI singles from Daniel Murphy and Josh Thole and a triple by Fernando Martinez. Martinez was 2 for 3.
  • In the 7th after the Braes tied the game, Mike Cervenak drove in Daniel Murphy to give the Mets a 5-4 lead.
  • In our Ike Davis watch, he was 1 for 2.

The Defense:

  • The Mets recored 4 errors in the game all in the 7th inning.
  • First Josh Thole made a bad throw back to the pitcher Stinson after a pitch.
  • Ike Davis made a error fielding a ground ball.
  • Anderson Hernandez made a bad throw to first.
  • One on a pickoff by Stinson on the throw to Davis.

The Mets will next play tomorrow at Tradition Field against the Cardinals at 1:10 PM. R.A. DIckey will start for the Mets and face Eva  MacLane of the Cardinals.
