Unhappy Recap: Braves 5 Mets 0

It had to happen sooner or later. The incredible run support Steve Trachsel enjoyed came to an end.
Chuck James handcuffed the Mets, allowing only one hit, in the second inning. This comes after getting nothing off Roy Oswalt the day before. The Mets now have 1 run and 5 hits in the last two games combined.

Walks are also killing the Mets pitching staff. After El Duque walked 6, Trachsel walked 7 in 4 1/3 innings.

For the second straight day the Mets were caught off guard on a bunt play.

Heath Bell and Rocye Ring pitched well, which is encouraging, though neither of them will make the playoff roster.

Carlos Beltran did not play, but he only has a bruised knee and should be back soon.
