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.
Grade for the Game: C

When I say David Wright and good play, most people think of the barehanded play on a slow ground ball. You would be half right to say that. Here is a barehanded play from Wright against the Padres, although the ball was not hit on the ground….

R.A. Dickey started today and went 8 innings, let up 8 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts.
Izzy pitched a hitless inning.
Daniel Murphy had 3 hits and tied the game with a go ahead 2-run homer.
Reyes had 4 hits and a run scored tonight.
Beltran had 3 hits, 2 doubles, and an RBI.
Ike and Harris each had a hit.
R.A. Dickey was outstanding—he’s the first pitcher of the year to pitch through 8. He gave a tired bullpen the night off.
Pagan tried to score on a weak wild pitch and would have been safe if he had slid correctly.
The Thole play confused me badly. Why would Reyes be off the bag if the ball was popped up? I mean come on, you’re not going to go anywhere. Get back to the bag and we might win this game.
Wright is in a 0 for 18 slump.
Beltran is swinging a red hot bat.
As Keith Hernandez said, “This is like a horror movie!”
