About this project: I am no Chaucer or Homer (in the Greek poet sense), but through the 2023 season, I will be writing a poem about each Mets game in an epic poem style. Obviously, I hope this will not be another tragedy! The poem will be in the left column, and the translation will be on the right.
Four hits just are not going to get the job done,
Even with hot pitching trying to stand tall.
You are going to need more than a solo home run.
A grand slam would have been nicer, or just a ball off the wall.
Rallies need to be truly finished, not fizzled out,
And, obviously, we need to hit the ball.
Despite good pitching, Fish flash, take the second bout.
But there is no fear or shame in an early season loss.
We look forward to the next with no reason to pout.
Despite a solid pitching effort by the Mets, they lost because they only had four hits. Pete Alonso had a solo home run in the ninth inning.
However, the Mets rallied in the sixth to load the bases but Alonso lined out to end the rally without a run scoring. Two of the runners came via walks…there was just one hit that inning.
The Marlins won the second game of the series/season. However, we can’t get upset with an early loss as we look forward to the next game.
