Yeah they lost and will go home 4-2 instead of 5-1. But, the thing to take out of today’s game is how well Orlando Hernandez pitched and not get all over Aaron Heilman.
Hernandez entered the season a durability question and the Mets couldn’t have asked for more from him. Heilman had off-season elbow surgery, but said he’s fine now. He looked it in St. Louis, coming in at key situations and getting Scott Rolen and Albert Pujols.
For now, consider this is just a stinker for Heilman.
