Lucas Duda hit a bomb into the upper deck of Nationals Park, a game tying shot for his 9th homer of the year.
Willie Harris hit a pinch hit 2 run single to give the Mets the lead.
In his big league debut Josh Satin went 1 for 2 with a single.
I don’t know what to say about Mike Pelfrey. The one plus over his last couple of starts have been his fastball velocity. It has been climbing back up into 95-97 range as of late. However, he still does not have a put away pitch in his arsenal. I still think he should use his curve more.
Ruben Tejada is making a case here that he can hit at this level.
Josh Stinson was great out of the bullpen again going 2 innings today showing poise as a relief pitcher.
Congrats to Josh Satin on his first big league hit.
Jon Niese pitched 7 strong innings letting up 3 runs on 5 hits and striking out 6 Dodgers. He only walked 1 on the night.
Ruben Tejada hit a 2 run double off Kuroda which proved to be the winning run for the Mets.
Lucas Duda had 2 hits including an RBI double.
Jon Niese was great tonight. He kept hitters off balance with his curve and cutter and was impeccable with his control. He is a great left handed pitcher.
Carlos Beltran is now the NL leader in doubles. One of my good friends who is a Phillies fan was arguing that Victorino deserved it more than Beltran. That one stat proves Beltran is an all-star.
Bobby Parnell has some of the dirtiest stuff in the national league. He throws 100MPH fastballs and throws a slider at 90-92 with great movement. If he gains control over all of his pitches, he can be a dominant reliever.
If Ruben Tejada can hit at all in the big leagues, he will be a great everyday starter.
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.
Today after the game, the Mets announced that Blane Boyer and Lucas Duda were headed to the Minor Leagues and Izzy and Igarashi were going to Queens. I like both moves because Lucas has not been hitting and Boyer has not been pitching well. The bullpen has been overworked the past week so why not get another reliever up here. Good moves, WELCOME BACK IZZY.
