Z-Cap: Mets Offense a No-Show Against Hensley, Marlins

Despite a pretty damn good outing from Chris Capuano tonight, the Mets were unable to top the Marlins tonight falling 4-1 due to a lifeless offense (Box Score).

Tonight the Mets line up was lackluster to say the least, only able to muster three hits against Clay Hensley and the Marlins bullpen.  The only Mets batter worth anything tonight was Willie Harris who was responsible for 2 of the three Mets hits.  The lone Mets RBI came off the bat of Jason Bay, who drove in Dan Murphy with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning.  Probably the biggest hit the Mets got tonight, excuse me, was the one that sidelined Scott Hairston after his first at bat.  Hairston was given a start because he’d been swinging a hot bat and Carlos Beltran has been battling a case of the flu.  The only positive news on the day is that Jose Reyes as well as Beltran should be back tomorrow night.  Thank goodness.

At least Capuano should be given his due for a good night, going 7 2/3 innings giving up 4 runs, on 7 hits while striking out 5.  He looked good for most of the night, until Mike Stanton doubled in two runs in the 4th.  Unfortunately, those are the only runs the Marlins would need tonight.

At least Reyes returns tomorrow.  They need it…
