Two games. Two wins. Nine runs in each.
On The Mound
Six pitchers combined to allow only three hits, one of which never made it out of the infield.
Oliver Perez struck out three in two innings of work, walking one. He allowed no hits. Dillon Gee followed that up with two shut out innings of his own. He allowed an infield hit to Cameron Maybin, but picked him off at first base.
Jon Switzer and Nelson Figueroa combined for three shut out innings, each tallying one strike out.
Heriberto Ruelas and Kyle Snyder finished out the game for the Mets.
At The Plate
Working with a peculiar line up which had Perez batting second and Jose Reyes batting third, the Mets got more than they bargained for.
Reyes went 2-4 on the day, both home runs. He hit a grand slam in the fourth inning and followed that up with a solo home run in the sixth inning. Six RBIs for Reyes on the day.
Carlos Beltran hit a two-run home run, picking up three RBIs total.
Beltran, Luis Castillo and Daniel Murphy each picked up a stolen base.
In The Field
As noted before, Gee picked off Maybin at first base in the third inning.
The Mets will take on the St. Louis Cardinals tomorrow at 1 p.m. The game will be available on the MLB Network and SNY. I will be live blogging until 2:45 p.m.
