Despite Comeback Mets Fall 7-6 in 10 Innings

Tonight the Mets showed heart, and life, and then lost anyway to the Marlins by the score of 7-6 (box score).  Maine was awful, the Marlins bullpen might have been worse but it didn't matter because at the end of the day Takahashi gave up one run in 1/3 innings of work, and took a loss in his first major league outing.

On the hill, Maine showed Mets fans nothing tonight going giving up 8 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings.  Mejia and Green gave up a run each in the 6th and 7th before Feliciano held the Marlins scoreless in the eighth, and K-Rod did the same in the ninth before Takahashi took the loss in the 10th.

At the plate, Cora led off the 1st for the Mets with a triple and then scored on a sac fly from Castillo to tie the game in the first.  The Mets then came back to tie the game in the eighth on an error, some walks, and a balk from Veras and Leo Nunez (which i didn't see).  The star at the plate for the Mets tonight was probably Bay went 2-3 for the Mets with a double, and two runs scored.

The bottomline here tonight was that the team was given a chance to win a game they probably shouldn't have been in.  You cannot expect to win a game giving up 17 hits.  That being said, they still tied it late with some help from the umps but weren't able to capitalize.  Although, last season this game would have ended hours ago with the team giving up, they didn't do that maybe things will be different this season. 

The team looks to take the series tomorrow night at 7 against the Marlins with Jon Niese going up against Nate Robertson...
