METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 11, 2009 GAME:ABK
June 12, 2009
Wow, back to back tough losses for the Mets. You look at this series and the Mets could have very well won all 3 games, but a lack of clutch hitting really doomed them. In Game 2 they had several opportunities to re-take the lead but could not find the big hit. And in Game 3, no add-on runs!! How many times have we seen this same movie with the Mets? They get an early lead and stop hitting. You can't do that against any team in the majors, but especially not against the Phillies who make their living it seems on rallying late in games.
Positives from the game: 1. Wright is starting to hit 2. Redding was exceptional in my opinion.
That's about it.
Now we are 4 games back and it is gut-check time. If the Mets have any chance this year these next few weeks are going to determine their fate. I think this weekend series against the cross-town Yanks is important because the Phillies have a tough series against the Red Sox in which they will have to face both Beckett and Lester. Mets need to try to get 1 or 2 games back and stay close until they get healthy again. By the way, after the loss to the Phillies Minaya announced that John Maine is going to the DL because of a dead arm. More injuries. WHEN WILL THIS MADNESS STOP??

This game was played in the thickest, densest fog I've ever seen at a baseball game.
Ibanez hit a home run that I don't think has landed yet.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
