Mets Recap: Mets Mystified By Wainwright

In 2012, Adam Wainwright surrendered 12 runs on 14 hits in his two outings against the Mets.

In 2013, Adam Wainwright gave up 4 hits, but kept the Mets off the board.

Unfortunately for the Mets, they met the 2013 version when he held the Mets to four hits in 7 innings pitched as the St. Louis Cardinals blanked the Mets 3-0. 

But Wainwright needed a little help.  In the 5th inning, the Mets threatened to score when Chris Young took Wainwright deep, but was called out when left fielder Matt Holliday reached over the fence to catch the ball before going out of play for a home run.

That was as close as the Mets would get to scoring against Wainwright.  He had to leave after 7 innings after hyper-extending his knee, an injury that isn't expect to sideline the ace.

NOT-SO-GRAND: Curtis Granderson has reached a career low - now 0 for his last 22.  What was hoped to be a confidence boost when he hit a sac-fly to bring home the game-winning run on Sunday has turned into a continuation of his woes at the plate.  

GEEZ: Dillon Gee took the loss for the Mets, giving up 2 runs in the 4th inning, then retired three straight to prevent any further damage.

VALVE: Jose Valverde, making his first appearance since losing the closer role, proceeded to surrender a run when Matt Holliday brought home Daniel Descalso before getting thrown out at second to end the top of the 9th.

MIDDLE MATT: Off the field, Matt Harvey made news when he tweeted a photo of himself in bed marking the 6-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery.  The photo featured himself giving the middle finger on camera.  

The Mets were not pleased, and not only asked Harvey to delete the tweet, but to also delete his Twitter account.
