It looks like the Marlins just have the Mets’ number this year. The Mets wasted a great effort from starter Carlos Torres as they failed to put a run across the board and were shut out by a score of 3-0. The Mets are 6-11 against Miami this year and are 3-11 in the month of September. They have been shutout three times on this home stand. With the loss, the Mets were dealt their 82nd defeat on the year. They have secured their fifth consecutive losing season.
Torres (L, 3-5, 3.48) pitched well in the loss. He gave up an RBI single to Logan Morrison in the fourth and a solo shot to Donovan Solano in the sixth. All told Torres gave up two runs on three hits with 8 Ks over six innings.
The real story of the game was the Mets’ striking lack of offense. All they could muster was a mere four hits on the day. Two of those hits came off the bat of rookie Matt den Dekker. den Dekker singled in the second and doubled in the seventh. His seventh inning double was the first extra base hit of his career.
Frank Francisco allowed a runner he inherited from Tim Byrdak to score. Francisco was knocked out of the game when he was struck in the right thumb on a Logan Morrison comebacker. He left the game for x-rays and Terry Collins announced that Francisco has been diagnosed with a bruised thumb.
