Daniel Murphy had a huge game going 2 for 2 with a solo homer and a 2 run double in the 8th and 9th inning.
R.A. Dickey started for the Mets and went 6 2/3 innings let up 8 hits, 2 runs, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts.
Hu hit a game tying sac fly and Turner had an RBI single.
Bay and Ike each had 2 hits.
Wright, Reyes, Harris, and Nickeas all had hits.
Igarashi, K-rod, and Beato all had scoreless outings.
Dickey looked really good tonight. He had his control back and pitched well. He kept the Mets in the game.
Bay has been a catalyst for this club since the moment he stepped foot in the diamond. Different player so far in 2011.
Reyes hit a ball today and went for a triple but was called for oversliding the bag for the second out of the 8th inning. Reyes flipped, Terry was out there before you could blink and no body got thrown out because it was such a bad call. Seriously a different situation and they might have been out of the game. Chip Hale had to hold Reyes back from the Umpire.
Daniel Murphy’s home run was huge for the Mets tying the game after the terrible call on Reyes. Gave everyone Mets related energy and in my opinion won the game.
What a game for the Mets, it seemed all the air was taken out of the balloon when Reyes was called out but Murphy came up and hit the homer and right there when I saw the energy from everybody I knew we were going to win this game. Even down one in the 9th after the unearned run, I still felt something special for this game. That Murphy home run just…words can not describe his performance tonight.
AMAZIN’ NIGHT METS! LETS GO! 6 IN A ROW!
Grade for the Game: A+ (It takes a lot to get an A+ out of me)
