Hard to imagine one day on the job was truly enough for new Mets hitting coach Lamar Johnson to make much of a difference. It only looked that way.
Moments before the game, rapper 50 Cent went into his best windup and was comically off target with a ceremonial first pitch that sailed way wide of home plate.
Struggling to locate his blazing sinker, Treinen endured some growing pains in a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night. The right-hander gave up two runs on 5 2/3 innings, striking out four and walking five, with both walks turning into Pittsburgh runs.
Washington Nationals rookie pitcher Blake Treinen didn't have the added pressure of facing a Cy Young winner in his second major league start.
Besides a solo home run by Ian Desmond, the Nationals couldn't get much going on offense in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Solid starting pitching. A couple of defensive gems. Just enough hitting to make a difference.
With the Pirates playing their first nationally televised Sunday night game from PNC Park in the facility's 13-year history, everything was set up for Pittsburgh to win once again in dramatic fashion.

No homers, no two-out hits. The Reds were all out of them once the game resumed.
Mike Leake still thinks of himself as a hitter. He's even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards.
Jim Henderson got the big out, and made the big play.
"We know what we're capable of doing, and we're going to play like we've been there before, like we've done it before," said slugger Andrew McCutchen, hoping to lead Pittsburgh back to the playoffs for the second straight year. "That's what we've got to look forward to."
"That's what we're known for, just playing routine baseball, not doing anything too out of the ordinary," McCutchen said. "(Just) getting in scoring position, getting some runs home and having pitching shut it down for us."
