Post-Game: Brewers 4 Mets 2
Apr. 19, 2009 (MetsBlog delivered by Newstex ) --

The Mets (6?6) lost to the Brewers , 4?2, in Citi (NYSE:C) Field today.

For a full recap and boxscore, go to

The least you should know?Nelson Figueroa pitched six innings, allowed three runs and fits. He was designated for assignment after the game. Carlos Delgado hit home Daniel Murphy with an opposite-field, two-out, two-strike double off the left-field wall. The Brewers scored on a Mike Cameron home run, a sac-fly, a fielders choice and a single from Rickie Weeks.Other Observations?I feel the Mets will do something special on days when they were the blue hats and pinstripes ? unfortunately, this is not always the case. Daniel Murphy had three more hits, and continues to look like a professional hitter? especially hitting the other way. I find it easy to ROOT for Figueroa, who I wish the Mets could find a permanent spot for. Yet one more fan leaned over to interfere with a fly ball down the line, which Murphy may have caught. Folks, please keep your hands inside the car. Naturally, Mike Cameron hit a home run in the following at bat. Come on, people. Help the Mets, dont hurt ?em. Watching an eventual loss on DVR is the worst. I had no issue with keeping Tatis in to hit with runners on base, since he had been such a clutch hitter in the past, though a bunt from Luis Castillo could have been handy. Apparently, the sun is a problem during day games for the right fielder, though Gary Sheffield did a nice job, albeit jockeying for position, on two separate pops ups. The Brewers outfielder did not have the same luck, letting a ball accidentally drop, which Jose Reyes turned in to a triple. The Mets were 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position, and, while its early, I wonder when this starts to become a concern for management. Its like the entire offense is just out of sync ? every time I get on the edge of my seat and think, ?OK, this is it, some one grounds out and the inning is over. Brewers closer Todd Coffey, who grew up a Mets fan, pitched in three innings for his first save of the season.The Mets are off tomorrow ? they return to action on Tuesday against the Cardinals in St. Louis with Oliver Perez on the mound.
