The wind giveth and the wind taketh away.
Raul Valdes in relief. 3 2/3 innings, two hits, two walks and three Ks. Too be it was after Ollie.
Jason Bay and his wind aided hits. He picked up two hits and two RBI on the day, but has to thank the wind for both.
Jose Reyes went 2-4 with two runs scored.
Ike Davis picked up two more hits and walked two more times today. I like Ike.
Oliver Perez. Seven walks in only 3 1/3 innings. Only two hits, though.
11 walks by Mets pitchers in the game.
Jenrry Mejia serving up the go-ahead homer in the 8th. Enough of this, send him down.
David Wright with 4 Ks and getting tossed in the 9th. If the Mets managed to tie it up – due to Jerry Manuel’s poor bench managing – the Mets would have had to put a position player in the field somewhere.
Jerry Manuel’s poor bench managing. (It deserves to be noted twice.)
Jose and/or Ike.
The Mets welcome the Nationals to Citi Field tomorrow, a 7 p.m. start.
