Mets lose in extra innings for second straight game

 

It only took 10 innings for the Mets to be humiliated by the Marlins yesterday.

New York was swept by the worst team in baseball — again — with an 8-4 loss at Citi Field. They were swept last week in Miami as well.

Bobby Parnell had his first real disastrous outing of the season, and not in a closing role. He came in to pitch the top of the 10th inning with the game tied, 4-4, and allowed four hits and three runs. He was aided in his futility on an error by Daniel Murphy, which allowed an unearned run to score. Rob Carson finished off the disaster by allowing a two-run home run to Miguel Olivo to provide the final margin.

Parnell has allowed four runs and eight hits in his last 2 1/3 innings. His ERA has risen from 1.85 to 3.04 over those three appearances.

The Mets (23-35) now have the third-worst record in the majors, ahead of only Miami (18-44) and Houston (22-42) — two teams who were picked to be historically bad.
