Another frustrating loss, but it will get better. The offense started the same way last year then got hot. Another quality start wasted!

LOSS: Despite pitching very well, AJ Burnett takes the loss to drop to 0-2.

STARTER: As mentioned, Burnett had a good start, but he has to give us more than 5.2 innings. Still, just 1 run and 9 Ks. Kept us in the game.

Goat: Hard to pick one unless we could just say the OFFENSE. A lot of guys who did good things did things to hurt us. Marte getting thrown out at third, but getting our only hits of the night. Martin getting picked off first in crucial situation despite playing great behind the plate and saving some runs with his D. On a night where we lost by just a run, I have to give the goat horns to Pedro who went 0-3 with 3 Ks...

Honorable Mention: Mark Melancon and Tony Watson each went an ugly inning, but managed to keep the Dodgers off the board and keep it at a one run game.

Star #3: It wasn't pretty either, but Jared Hughes worked out of a bases loaded jam without any further damage after coming in with one out and two on in the sixth...allowing a weak single to load them then getting out of them. It's nice that the threat of Marte's arm seems to keep runners from challenging him.

Star #2: Gotta give it to AJ. Wasn't his best performance, but for the most part he did a great job before wearing out. We need to get him some RUNS!

Star #1: Despite the base-running blunder, Marte DID have our only two hits of the night. In addition, in my opinion, he saved a run just with the threat of his arm in the sixth. Not much to cheer about tonight, but hopefully this two hit night can get Marte's bat going!
