Dillon Gee went 8 magnificent innings letting up 8 hits, 1 run, no walks, and 5 strikeouts.
Jose Reyes went 3 for 5 with a solo homer.
Angel Pagan had a double, triple, and RBI tonight.
Justin Turner had a 2 run single.
Lucas Duda had an RBI single and Sac fly.
Josh Thole had 3 hits and an RBI.
Carlos Beltran also had an RBI and a hit.
Dillon Gee is just a great all around pitcher. He does not have ace like stuff but, he is surely pitching like an ace this year. He simply knows how to pitch and can execute even after a rough first. A 7-0 start for arguably the most underrated rookie on the season.
For some reason the Mets can rake against Charlie Morton when no other team can, now if only they could hit the ACTUAL Halladay…
Jose Reyes….you guys know the drill. AMAZING!
Josh Thole and Ruben Tejada have really turned it on this year hitting very well at positions the Mets were unsure of coming into the year.
Lucas Duda looks like a different hitter from earlier this year. He has so much power and he hit the ball so much harder than a 1 for 4 night tonight.
I love watching this non-power lineup for the Mets, getting hits with runners on has been where they have thrived during this good stretch for the offense. Power baseball is exciting, but line drives and singles can be great too.
Dillon Gee was amazing tonight going 7 innings, letting up 0 runs on 4 hits. He walked 2 and struck out 2.
Jose Reyes hit a bases clearing 3 run triple to extend the lead.
Jason Pridie had a pinch hit single.
Justin Turner had a hit and a sac fly.
Murphy and Thole had 2 hits a piece.
Beato pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings while Byrdak pitched 2/3 of an inning.
Dillon Gee was great tonight as he mauled through a braves lineup through 7 innings while only throwing 85 pitches. He could have gone 9 if the Mets were not rallying in the 7th. He is defiantly, if not the frontrunner, in the conversation for NL Rookie of the Year.
Jose Reyes is the most exciting player in baseball. Period.
Jason Pridie had such a clutch pinch hit today. He has been great so far this year.
Justin Turner just continues to produce for this team.
Chris Capuano went 6 great innings, gave up 4 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts.
Justin Turner went 4 for 5 with an RBI.
Reyes, Beltran, and Paulino had 2 hits each.
Angel Pagan made his return tonight and had a 2 hit game.
Izzy gave up a run in the 8th and K-Rod gave up 3 in the 9th.
Ruben Tejada went 0 f0r 3 with 16 pitch walk.
Capuano was spectacular again tonight holding the Phillies to 1 earned run while striking out 8 men in just 6 innings. He only threw 77 pitches but was pinch hit for in the middle of a rally.
The at-bat by Tejada was amazing. 16 pitches and drawing the walk is just the type of pesky hitter that he needs to be. I am very happy with his production so far.
The Mets made some amazing diving catches in the outfield today, but also botched a few balls. One was an error by Beltran and one was a ball that Murphy should have caught at first, but it got by him.
Justin Turner is a great hitter so far. I don’t know how you can take both him and Tejada out of the lineup once Wright returns. That is going to be a tough choice to make.
Angel Pagan looked like the man from 2010 today getting 2 hits in 4 at-bats. He needs to be back to that form for this team to be succesful.
Justin Turner was spectacular again knocking 3 hits including an RBI double.
Dickey looked like the man from last year going 6 innings only letting up 4 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 6.
Daniel Murphy homered tonight. A go ahead shot in the 6th.
Beltran, F-Mart, and Pridie all had hits tonight.
O’Connor, Izzy, and K-Rod all pitched scoreless innings to end it.
Don’t worry K-Rod, the saves are ok at Yankee stadium this year. Castillo is gone remember?
Dickey was phenomenal tonight getting back to what he did at his best last year. His best signs were only the 4 hits allowed and that he struck out 6 Bankee, I mean Yankee batters. His only bad mark was that homer from Texiera. IT IS HIGH IT IS FAR IT IS GONE!! OH BABY MARK SENDS A TEXT MESSAGE, YOUR ON THE MARK TEXIERA. (I couldn’t resist making fun of that ridiculous broadcaster.)
Turner may be the hottest player in the NL right now. RBIs in 6 straight games, unbelievable. Player of the week?
Murph’s homer was clutch and it got Dickey a win that he desperately needed.
Jose Reyes made an amazing game saving catch in the 5th to throw out a runner. That is why he needs to be resigned.
THE YANKEES LOSE THEEEEEEEE YANKEES LOOOOOSE! Wow I really need to stop making fun of that man….
Come into Yankee stadium and taking game one from the bombers is a huge statement from this team. And my friend whose a Red Sox fan greatly appreciated it.
First off, sorry for the lack of posting this weekend, if you followed my twitter, you would know that I was very busy all weekend. Anyways, back to baseball, Daniel Murphy walked today, I know amazing right? Actually it was weird because he walked on ball 3. After a pick off was thrown away, Murphy fouled off one 2-2 pitch and then took ball 3 and promptly flipped his bat into the dugout and walked to first base. He thought it was ball 4 and apparently so did the Astros’ Manager and all the umpires. It was the first time I’d seen it happen, but with a little research I learned it did happen more than once. Former Red Sox player Coco Crisp walked on ball 3 against the Orioles. This walk was more significant however because on the very next pitch Justin Turner blasted a 3-run homer into left to add to the lead. This might have been the strangest play this year.
Brad Emaus is gone. He is not going to the minor leagues, he is gone. Today the Mets announced that they have designated Brad Emaus for assignment which means that Emaus has to be offered back to Toronto. The only ways that Emaus can go to AAA is if the Mets work out a trade for Emaus, or the Blue Jays don’t want him (won’t happen). Justin Turner is now up in the big leagues to share the job with Murphy.
