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.
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.
