Mets Lose in Extras, Get Swept in the Desert

Despite Angel Pagan's best efforts the Mets fell to the D'backs again last night 4-3 (box score/wrap).  The Mets were swept in Arizona after losing 3 of 4 to the Giants.  For those of you keeping track that puts them at 1-6 so far on this road trip, and only by the mercy of the baseball gods, have they managed to stay ONLY 6.5 games behind the Braves.

It has been a bad week so far, and a horrendous second half of the season.  The only potential bright spot is that the Mets are now heading to L.A. to take on a Dodgers team that has also gone 1-6 in the second half of the season so far.  But playing bad teams haven't helped the Mets recently, since they were just swept by one of the worst teams in the league...

The four game set the Mets have with the Dodgers starts tonight at 10:10.  The Mets are sending Takahashi to the hill against Hiroki Kuroda.  It's time for a turn-around...
