Scott Hairston went 3 for 5 with 5 RBI including a 2nd deck 3 run homer.
Daniel Murphy went 3 for 5 with a solo homer.
Jon Niese went 7 innings, gave up 2 runs (1 earned), 6 hits, 1 walk, and 6 strikeouts.
My good friend who is a diehard Phillies fan, told me that Jon Niese can not be an ace pitcher in the big leagues. He showed today, that he can dominate a lineup with consistancy. I really like Niese.
Hairston today may have made Sandy Alderson’s job about what to do with Carlos Beltran a little easier today as he exploded with 5 RBI today. The last Met in my memory to hit a 2nd deck homer was Luis Castillo…that was a funny day.
Jason Bay today was really good. He got 2 hits and a stolen base. Just one hit at a time Bay…
I don’t understand how Daniel Murphy gets so much hate. The only thing wrong with his is that he can not field for his life. He is such a good hitter and should be starting daily when Wright and Reyes return.
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.
