How can a team lose when a pitcher only give up two hits over 3 plus innings? It happens when that team is the Mets, and that pitcher is the non-control specialist Kaz Ishii. Victor Zambrano was able to dodge the bases-loaded jam he created last night, but Ishii was not as lucky, as all his walks ended up costing him five runs in this slog marathon.
On the plus side, Cliff Floyd keeps hitting, which leads me to ask this question: is there any reason why the Mets should not have two All-Stars, Pedro and Floyd? (Of course, Mike Piazza will probably win the fans balloting at catcher, which will likely cost Floyd any chance of making it).
