David Wright has the day off. Wright didn’t go all out on Jeff Francoeur’s hit and as a result didn’t get the run as the out was recorded at second before he crossed the plate.
There’s no reason for it and it is rare when Wright doesn’t go full out. Wright, stand up as usual, apologized to his teammates after the game.
The Mets close out their series at Florida today with Pat Misch on the mound. That’s something I don’t understand. Misch, who likely won’t be with the Mets next year, gets a start despite not pitching well, while Bobby Parnell, who is part of the future, was pulled.
Still think that’s odd and Parnell should have started.
The game means something to the Marlins, who are still alive. For the Mets, more of the same. We’ll also check in on the Jets, who are wearing the ugly Titans jersey, against the Titans. Giants are on later.
Here’s the batting order:
Angel Pagan, CF
Anderson Hernandez, 2B
Daniel Murphy, 1B
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Cory Sullivan, LF
Fernando Tatis, 3B
Josh Thole, C
Wilson Valdez, SS
Pat Misch (1-4, 5.59 ERA), LP
