I can remember writing this a couple of times already this season, but this time I mean it — the Mets-Padres game on Tuesday night was one of the worst games I’ve seen in a while. The Mets went down 6-1 in a game that featured absolutely nothing.
The Mets offense managed just four hits in scratching out the lone run. The pitching was lousy, allowing the Padres 15 hits. Jonathon Niese let up two runs in the first inning, digging a hole that proved to be too deep. He would allow a third run in his six innings. Pedro Beato came on to allow two runs in his inning.
Mike Pelfrey, cooking up some crap pitching
Then a surprise — Mike Pelfrey started the eighth inning. He was knocked out of his last start on Saturday after just four innings when he got hit on the elbow, so he likely needed some work. He lasted just eight pitches though, allowing a run. So now we learn Pelfrey is mediocre out of the bullpen as well.
Just a forgettable game. I’ll forget I wrote this, you forget you read it.
