Mets Game Recap: Mets 2 Marlins 6

Quick Game Notes:

  • Final Score: Mets 2 – Marlins 6
  • Box Score: Click here for the complete box score.
  • Mets Record: 0-1
  • Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the bottom of the 4th inning when John Buck hit a grand slam home run off Mike Pelfrey. That put the Marlins up 4-0 at the time and that was enough to beat the Mets in the season opener.
  • Game Ball: Willie Harris: 2-4 | 1 Run. Harris filled in nicely for an injured Jason Bay. He had a nice hustle play to break up the Josh Johnson no hitter by legging out a double and scoring the Mets first run of the season on a Carlos Beltran RBI double.
  • Additional Comments:
  • Mike Pelfrey: 4.1 IP | 4 H | 5 ER | 2 SO | 4 BB
  • Mets Offense: 4 H | 6 SO. Not a good start for an offense that struggled most of last season.
  • Up Next: The New York Mets the second game of the season against the Florida Marlins: Saturday April 2, 2011 at 7:10 pm.

      Well, Harris performed as the numbers told Collins he would. So, I'm not giving TC a game ball, but, he deserves a tip-o-the-hat.

      I couldn't believe Marlins' skipper Edwin Rodriguez pulled Johnson with a 3-run lead in the top of the 7th at home, on Opening Day, if that was Santana pitching at Citi Field with a three-run lead, there's no way he's coming out of that game, Johnson's supposed to be the Marlins ace, right, I'd be pretty upset if my manager pulled me out of a game like that. As for the Mets, Thole should be batting 7th, followed by Emaus 8th. Wright's 0-for-4 night w/2 SO not a good start for him. What can you do, Collins said it, "we've got 161 of these games left."

        Opening day last year (at Citi Field), in the bottom of the sixth, one out and Barajas on 2B, with Mets up 4-1, Pagan pitch hit for Santana.
