Dickey pitched 8 strong innings giving up 1 run on 4 hits. He walked 1 and struck out 3 Braves.
Jose Reyes went 2 for 4 with a double and RBI.
Daniel Murphy went 2 for 3 with a walk.
Beltran hit an RBI double and left the game early after fouling a ball off his shin.
Pagan, Tejada, and Turner had RBI singles.
Acosta gave up 2 runs in 1/3 of an inning and K-rod gave up 1 in the final 2/3.
Dickey was great today with his second great start in a row. His knuckler was great as it fooled the Braves hitters all night. It looks like he is back to himself again. I wish he could have gone 9, but I guess his pitch limit was over.
Jose Reyes is starting to defy words. He is just amazing. He could be buying his way into a Mets uniform for years to come.
The offense was great without Bay tonight. Even with Murphy as a cleanup hitter they can still produce without home runs. 4 of the starting 9 tonight are hitting above .300.
The bullpen is awful. Simply put, it needs help and alot of it.
Carlos Beltran was the star hitting 3 2-run homers as he drove in all but 3 of the Mets runs.
Jon Niese started and went 6 1/3 innings while letting up 5 runs, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.
Josh Thole Hit a sac fly and Jose Reyes went 1 for 5 with a 2 run single.
Willie Harris had a hit and scored three times while Bay also had a hit.
O’Connor, Buchholz, Izzy, and K-Rod finished off the game.
Beltran and what he did tonight was great and really got me pumped up. He filled in great in the absence of Ike showing power from both sides of the plate. He is still a great hitter even with all the critisim he has gone through. If Terry is smart, he will continue to hit 3rd.
I feel bad for Niese, he pitched way better then his line showed. Even without a curveball he had only given up 2 or 3 runs before he was taken out. Simply a shame to me.
Jose Reyes’ bases loaded single was huge as the Mets usually struggle with the bases loaded.
Why was K-Rod in for the 9th? Byrdak was warming up and it was not a save situation. Do you wanna cost us $17.5MM Terry?
Mike Pelfrey started and posted a line of 7 innings, 5 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts.
Ike Davis hit a go ahead 2 run home run in the 7th inning that just cleared the orange line in center field.
Carlos Beltran went 1 for 3 with an RBI single.
Jason Bay hit a double and struck out twice.
Reyes, Murphy, and Nickeas also had hits tonight.
Wright went o for 2 with 2 walks and a steal.
Izzy pitched a scoreless 8th and K-Rod pitched a scoreless 9th to get the save.
This was a huge start for Mike Pelfrey, after runners were on first and third with nobody out to start the game, he retired the side without a run scoring including a strikeout of Justin Upton. This was also a team that he has never beat, until tonight. He looked so much better tonight than he has all of this year. Hopefully this will stay.
Ike has been such a clutch hitter all year hitting a huge homer to straight away center field. He is leading the Mets in RBI this season.
This lineup looks more confident with Bay in that they feel they can score whenever. Hopefully Bay can show us some power this year.
Izzy has been a force in the ‘pen this year showing that he is not done yet in the majors.
