Jon Niese let up 3 runs on 9 hits over 6 innings. He struck out 7 and walked 2.
Ruben Tejada had an RBI single.
Justin Turner was 3 for 5 tonight.
The Mets just made too many mental mistakes tonight. Jose Reyes was thrown out at 3rd late in the game down by 2, and Murphy let a ball skip off his glove that resulted in a run. I am ok with the aggressiveness by Reyes because he was trying to make something happen (and also he was safe.) Murphy, on the other hand, should have jumped to get the ball so it did not go behind him.
Jon Niese pitched very well tonight. He struggled in the first against the tough Yankee lineup, but settled in getting 5 called strike 3 pitches mostly with his curveball. He has been great this year and didn’t deserve the loss.
The Mets played just ugly baseball tonight. They were not executing plays and stranding runners on base over and over again.
Angel Pagan went 4 for 6 with 4 RBI including 2 doubles.
Daniel Murphy drove in 4 runs on 2 clutch 2 run singles with the bases loaded and 2 outs.
Jason Bay went 1 for 2 with 4 walks and an RBI single.
Wow…that is all I can say, WOW.
This team is doing everything right. They are working the count and just hitting line drives. This team is so clutch getting endless hits with 2 outs and RISP. This is the most I have enjoyed watching this team in a long time.
Pagan is starting to get some hits off of left handed pitchers, that is great for him to start getting hot.
Cap was good tonight, his only blemish was 2 Miguel Cabrera homers.
The Mets were 10-17 with 2 outs tonight, that is a huge number.
