A doubleheader sweep!
(For the sake of my sanity, we’re combining these games into one recap)
Jason Bay hit his first home run as a Met in the first game. He also tripled, his third of the year, in the second game.
Welcome back, David Wright. He picked up his 1,000th hit. He went 4-6 at the plate with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored.
Ike Davis with 3 RBI in the nightcap.
Johan is Johan. Again, he wasn’t great. He allowed four hits and walked three, but no runs scored against him. He struck out six, needing 115 pitches.
The bullpen. Nieve, Feliciano, Takahashi, Mejia and Valdes. Super-duper.
The Bad & Ugly
Ollie. Bad Ollie showed up tonight. 3.2 IP, 3 H, 4 BB, 2 K . He let up three earned runs and threw only 37 of his 75 pitches for strikes.
Bay did K three times in game two.
Mejia is pitching mop-up duty. Mop-up. Really?
Wright, Takahashi and Johan.
The Mets try to sweep the series tomorrow afternoon, a 1:10 p.m. game.
