What a time to be playing the Mets! After losing 5 in a row and 9 of our last 10, now we get to go to the Big Apple and play 3 games with one of the best teams in baseball in their brand new stadium.

I didn’t see any of this game because I was out kayaking and camping on the Susquehanna River. All I missed was another loss for our losing streak.

It was Jeff Karstens @ Jon Niese. Karstens actually did a fair job, pitching 6 innings and leaving with the score 2-2. The disaster came in the 8th inning at the hands of Tyler Yates and Sean Burnett. Yates gave up 2 singles and a walk. Burnett came in and gave up a HR, a single, a double, a wild pitch, and a walk.

The Pirates added a meaningless run in the 9th. 7-3 Mets.

This series could get ugly.
