Jason Bay delivered the walk-off single in the 10th inning, his 2nd hit of the day.
Ronny Paulino hit a pinch hit RBI single to tie the game against Rivera in the 9th.
Dickey pitched 5 innings and left with a glut strain after 5 innings.
What a huge win for the Mets today, they got a blown save out of Mariano Rivera and then won the game in the 10th. This is exactly what the Mets needed after 2 tough losses to the Yanks. Great way to end interleague play for the season.
I hope Jason bay can finish this season as hot as he was against the American League. It was real good to see Jason get the hit today.
Ronny Paulino is a great catcher. A sensational signing by Alderson.
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.
Manny Acosta gave up 4 runs in less than 2 innings.
Ruben Tejada had an RBI single.
Pelfrey wasn’t terrible toinght, he gave up 3 of his runs in the first and then settled down a little bit walking only 2 on the night. He has really turned his season around from his rough start early in the year.
It was really good to see Jason Bay do very well again. Maybe it is just facing AL pitchers again. Remember he hit a homer (almost 2) against CLE earlier in the year and hit 2 against NYY last season. Very strange if you ask me.
Manny Acosta is simply a bad pitcher, no other way to say it.
R.A. Dickey was phenomenal going 8 innings, letting up 3 hits, 1 run, and struck out 9 Athletics.
K-Rod blew the save in the 9th for his 3rd of the year and his 2nd in a row.
Justin Turner had a clutch go-ahead RBI single and a walk-off Hit by pitch.
Dickey had so much movement tonight and honestly had no-hit stuff. His Knuckler was moving so well. He made one mistake to Suzuki that was a homer and Hairston lost the other ball in the lights. Too bad that K-Rod blew the save for him.
Turner finds new ways to drive in runs every night. Tonight he drove in a run on a HBP and he is the Mets most clutch player so far this year.
Bay regressed again, so I don’t know when he will return to his old form.
The Mets bullpen (besides K-Rod) was so good tonight not giving up a run over 4 innings and striking out 5.
They had the strikeout pitch going tonight striking out 16 Athletics.
