Game 92 Recap: Mets 1, Braves 7

I didn't watch last night's game. I mean, how could you considering who the announcers were. I did see the early innings where the Mets starter got hurt trying to leg out a bunt, but that's where I had to leave. I figured we could get some runs off their bullpen, and I was right.

Tim Redding came in and coughed up some runs with the help of errors -- I thought the Mets had released Redding a couple of days ago. I bet that release is not too far off now -- 7.16 ERA.

Apparently this Yunel Escobar guy is pretty good, despite his occaisional shenanigans. After being the goat of Saturday's loss to the Mets, he was the leader in Sunday's win. He went 3-for-4 with a homerun, an RBI single, and an RBI double. In the recap on Braves.com, you can tell that Mark Bowman is frustrated with Escobar for not talking to the media -- the reporters get mad when players don't talk to them.

But really, it's more fun to read the Mets.com recap:

By 9 p.m. ET, the Mets had produced another game consistent with that logo, their black and blue resolve and their strained record. They had endured a 7-1 defeat and given another performance devoid of resistance.

It was a costly series for the Mets, who lost one of their starting pitchers, Fernando Nieve, and may lose Gary Sheffield to the 15-day DL.

Kudos to the Braves for putting the Mets away in a series that may define the New Yorkers' frustrations in the second half. Meanwhile the Braves had a series that may define their vision of crawling back into the division race, marred by only one inconsistent game.
