Mets Short Handed; Lose Series Finale

Michael GanciCorrespondent IMay 18, 2009

The Mets lost to the Giants Tuesday night on national television by the score of 2-0, and they suffered another problem on the injury front.

Alex Cora was injured while sliding into second base, and the Mets found themselves without a legitimate shortstop.

Fernando Tatis filled the void, and he played the position that he hasn’t played since Bill Clinton was president.

Mike Pelfrey pitched well, but he balked on three separate occasions, which tied a club record. The game’s only two runs were scored as a result, and the Mets’ offense was stopped by a surging Matt Cain, leading to their settling with three of four from the San Francisco Giants.

RBI singles from Bengie Molina and Matt Cain came after the balks, and the Mets were unable to solve Cain or the Giants’ bullpen. They mustered only five hits, and they will prepare to take on Joe Torre’s Dodgers.

Tim Redding will get his first start as a Met, and hopefully Jose Reyes will be ready to go. If not, the Mets need to make a move.

Time to get back on the good side of things.
