IT'D BE A SHAME...
Mets Drop Their Sixth Series in a Row (Associated Press, June 21, 2007)
Torii Hunter hit a two-run homer and Scott Baker pitched five effective innings to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Mets 6–2 last night.
Joe Mauer also drove in two runs for Minnesota, which won two of three in its first series at Shea Stadium since 2002. Johan Santana tossed a four-hitter in the Twins' 9-0 victory Tuesday night and Baker allowed two runs and seven hits in the finale.
Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 and singled in a run for the foundering Mets, who have lost 13 of 16. New York has dropped six straight series since it took two of three games against San Francisco from May 29–31.
...to waste a team that's built to win now. Keep Carlos Gomez and Joe Smith, but trade some of the guys in the minors, including Lastings Milledge. Posted by Orrin Judd at June 21, 2007 12:00 AM
