By the Numbers:
- Jon Niese was spectacular going 7 2/3 innings while letting up 2 runs on 8 hits, walking 1, and striking out 7 Braves.
- Jose Reyes had his 27th multi-hit game with ANOTHER triple.
- Pagan and Murph each had 2 hits and an RBI.
- Carlos Beltran hit an RBI single.
- Izzy gave up 1 unearned run in 1/3 of an inning while K-Rod let up 3 in the 9th.
Niese was great tonight and is really locking in as a left handed threat on the mound. His year ERA is now 3.75 which is great seeing what is was at after April.
These types of losses really bring a fan down, especially when they happen every single night. When a team is blowing leads at home, in front of THEIR fans, it is just an awful sight to see.
The Bullpen is simply terrible lately, I mean just awful. It seems that everyone is giving up runs left and right.
Pagan has been great since coming back from the DL and fixed exactly what was wrong with him.
Grade for the Game: D
