Willie F*****’ Harris.
Welcome back, Jose Reyes. Reyes looked a little rusty to start, but made a nice play in the 9th and followed that up with a single to start a failed rally in the bottom half of the inning. Just glad to have him back.
Jeff Francoeur is on a tear. He went 2-4 with another walk today, scoring once.
Jason Bay scored twice, but failed to pick up a hit. (See: Below)
Oliver Perez is batting .500 with an RBI after his single in the second inning.
The bullpen. The Mets ‘pen continues to impress, combining for 3 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball, including Ryota Igarashi getting Willie Taveras to strike out swinging with two runners in scoring position.
Oliver Perez’s 5 2/3 innings, allowing four earned runs and four walks. He struck out six. He wasn’t great but he wasn’t awful. Ordinary Ollie.
The Bad & Ugly
Tyler Clippard. Clippard tossed three innings in relief and struck out seven Mets.
Ducks on the pond. The Mets left 12 runners on base. Lost by 1. Do the math.
K-Bay. Jason Bay: 0-4, 2 K.
Got to give it to Frenchy, again.
Rubber game tomorrow at 1:10 p.m.
