Mets Lose to Nats
The Mets lose again today falling to the Nationals 6-4 putting them at 3-4 for the spring. Both Mike Pelfrey and Livan Hernandez struggled giving up 3 runs each. The Mets scored 4 runs in the 5th off Collin Balester on the strength of a 3-run home run by Ramon Castro, and a solo shot by Fernando Tatis. The only other notable performance by a Met was a perfect inning by Duaner Sanchez in the 8th.
The Mets next spring game will be on Friday at the Cardinals. The game will be at 1:05, but won’t be televised.
