Justin Turner's hamstring injury highlighted the Mets' struggles as they fell 6-3 to the Nationals.
The Bad Stuff:
- Dillon Gee wasn't on the top of his game tonight, allowing four runs on nine hits in 6.1 innings, walking none and striking out five on 89 pitches.
- Justin Turner left the game in the 6th with a right hamstring injury.
- A run each was charged to Frank Francisco and Tim Byrdak after ex-Met Scott Hairston's two-run homer in the 9th to clinch it for Washington.
- Le Grande Orange Jr. was 2-3 with a double, run, and RBI before his injury.
- Matt den Dekker continues to make strides as he went 1-3 with two RBIs, stealing one base and getting caught on another.
After a strong summer, the New York Mets have faltered in September. Stop me if you've heard this before. But frankly, who wouldn't falter under the weight of the ungodly number of injuries? When you've got Andrew Brown and Zach Lutz getting regular time batting third, you know something's up.
P.S. Oh yeah, and now the Mets won't even be on WFAN anymore. They've been booted by the Yankees. The worst news you'll hear all day.
