Chris Johnson, Astros, Sweep Away Mets


Today Chris Johnson drove in 6 runs (and two homers) to power the ‘Stros to a sweep of the Mets in their last series in Houston before the Astros become an AL squad.  Today wasn’t pretty, and I don’t think I’d ever had expected to say this going into the season, but this team is really going to miss Mike Pelfrey until Chris Young is ready for action.

Chris Schwinden was completely bombed today, again.  Chris Young can’t get back soon enough.  Schwinden gave up 5 runs in 4 innings, including two homers to Johnson, that put the Mets into a whole that they could not possibly climb out of against an effective Wandy Rodriguez.  Even if Young isn’t ready any time soon, I find it very hard to believe that Schwinden will get another start any time soon.

The only positive thing to take from today was Andres Torres RBI single, I guess.  This has been a series to forget for the Mets on all fronts, but as it’s been said before this is a long season, and this season will be defined by the Mets ability to keep the winning streaks longer than the losing streaks.

The Mets will now come home to the Citi on Friday night to try to stop this losing streak against the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The Mets will send Dillon Gee to the hill, while the D’backs will counter with Wade Miley.

    hole instead of whole “that put the Mets into a whole “, but otherwise good work and use of graphics.
