The offense, or lack thereof, was again the key tonight. John Maine did not pitch well, but still should have a reasonable chance to win after giving up four runs. The Mets had five hits, with three coming after the second. Maine is now 1-4 after his 5-0 start.
-David Wright extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a second-inning single. He then stole his 14th base in as many attempts.
-The Mets have 41 steals in their last 29 games.
-The Mets have lost four straight series. Prior to that stretch they had lost only four series through May.
