By the Numbers:
- Chris Capuano went 6+ innings, let up 8 hits, 5 runs, 1 walk, and 2 strikeouts.
- Justin Turner hit a homer tonight, that is bigger than it sounds.
- Ruben Tejada had 2 hits and 2 RBIs.
- Beltran and Murphy each had 2 hits also.
- Beato let up 3 runs in one inning while Dale Thayer had a scoreless outing.
Chris Capuano pitched SO much better than his line. Once again he had a shutout through 6 innings and then just fell apart in the 7th.
Justin Turner’s homer ended a 10 game drought for the Mets today If you think about it they is at least 97 homerless innings.
Ruben Tejada has produced so well offensively for him, he has been great all year.
The Mets are just going through one blow up inning per game. It was the 7th and 8th tonight. Our bullpen just flat out sucks lately. They need to get their act back together.
