Mets Lose to Arizona at Chase Field

Mike SimmonsCorrespondent IMay 3, 2008

One word to describe Brandon Webb—WOW!!!

Webb was stellar, allowing only four runs to score and allowing a home run in six strong innings of work, as the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 10-4 in Arizona. Webb's now leading the league in wins with seven and looks unstoppable.

The Diamondbacks now have the best record in the league at 21-9. There rotation is as solid as anyone's in the major leagues, and he has no intentions of slowing down.

The Mets, on the other hand, have a very inconsistent rotation that only has a high point when Johan Santana pitches. Other than that, Oliver Perez, John Maine, and Mike Pelfrey have struggles, with Nelson Figueroa showing signs of a return to glory.

Besides pitching, the Mets lineup has very little power and is otherwise a work in progress. Same goes for their four-man bullpen.

Carlos Delgado hit yet another home run which may symbolize an escape from his slump, but he still has a long way to go.

Not to mention Aaron Heilman, who in one inning of work walked a batter and hit two straight batters to load the bases. A catastrophic eighth inning by Duaner Sanchez surrendered five runs and opened the game up with no chance of a comeback.

To Mets fans, you and I have to hope that this situation gets better, and that the pitching holds up or else we'll have a season like last year.

But to Diamondbacks fans, Godspeed.
