The Mets scored five times in the final two innings, but it was not enough to overcome an early 7-0 deficit. Why were the Mets down big? Domingo Tapia was wild in his return from the DL with a burned (non) pitching hand: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 0 K, HBP. Just yuck. It was his first game in 19 days, but that's not good.
At the plate, 3B Aderlin Rodriguez (.261/.287/.484 - 45 games) was 3-for-5 with an RBI. The 21-year old is bopping along at .345/.376/.632 in 21 games in May.
