Figueroa's 53 pitches cost Mets the game

How a manager could allow a starting pitcher to remain in a game long enough to surrender 10 hits and a walk in just 1.2 innings defies explanation. Among the 10 hits were three home runs. Unfortunately, it's not the first time that Jerry Manuel has left a pitcher in far too long. The six runs that starter Nelson Figueroa gave up were just enough to cost the Mets the game. They lost 6-5.
