Boring Sunday Afternoon at Citi Field as Mets Lose to the Rockies 1-0


If the Mets want to hold on to first place in the NL East, they must not play as they did today.  Max Scherzer was on the mound for the Amazins, but was outpitched by German Marquez of the Rockies.  Scherzer (9-4) gave up four hits and racked up 11 strikeouts over seven innings in his 110th double-digit strikeout game.  He got absolutely no run support as his teammates were held to just three hits by the Rockies.

The Rockies loaded the bases in the seventh inning with three singles.  The only run in the game was driven in on a sacrifice fly by Brian Servan.

It is time for scoreboard watching as the Mets' lead over the Atlanta Braves is 2 1/2 games.  As of this moment, the Braves and Cardinals are tied in the third inning.
