That’s three in a row, if you’re counting at home. (Also 5-1 this homestand.)
Bark at the Park Day. I love dogs.
Jason Bay: 3-4, 2B, RBI. That double to dead center was a rocket. Is someone heating up?
Jon Niese was a bit wild, but… 5 1/3 innings, five hits, five walks and only one run. He struck out six. Still winless, but continues to pitch well.
Manny Acosta vs. his old team. Acosta earned the win with 1 2/3 hitless innings, walking one and striking out three. Not bad, not bad at all.
K-Rod makes it easy. A 1-2-3 9th inning was way, way easier than yesterday. More of these, Frankie.
Henry Blanco stole a base. Yeah, I know!
The Bad & Ugly
Only five hits, three of them by Bay. Blanco and Francoeur picked up the other Mets hits. But only four strikeouts. Yay?
Frequent Fernando and Perpetual Pedro. They turned in a combined scoreless 8th inning, but it’s only a matter of time before their arms both fall off.
Sunday night baseball on ESPN tomorrow, an 8 p.m. start.
