Schoeneweis Not So Hot In Debut

Mark Hale at the New York Post, writes about Scott Schoeneweis and his first outing as a Met:

Scott Schoeneweis fared decently against righties last night but couldn't retire his one lefty.

The left-handed reliever debuted last night for the Mets to start the eighth inning of their 4-1 win over the Cardinals. After getting righties So Taguchi and Aaron Miles on a groundout and pop-up, respectively, Schoeneweis walked righty David Eckstein.

Schoeneweis, who has held lefties to a .231 career average, then faced lefty Chris Duncan, who singled to right off him.

"It's one of those things that you kind of take pride in," Schoeneweis said of the lefty getting a hit, though he called it "no big thing."
