Back-to-back road wins!
For the first time since late July of last year, the Mets won back-to-back road games. Hey monkey, get off their back!
Taka! After a few rough outings, Hisanori Takahashi bounced back with a one-run, seven-inning effort. Taka allowed six hits, walking one, while striking out two. Ninety-three pitches and a stellar outing for him. It helps to play the Orioles, doesn’t it?
Solo shots. Jose Reyes homered to lead off the game and Jeff Francoeur knocked one in the 8th for a little breathing room.
Pedro to K-Rod. They both allowed baserunners, but they both escapes without damage. I’ll take it.
The Bad & Ugly
Ruben Tejada’s baserunning. Not sure what went wrong on that play – looked like he just got a bad read on the ball – as he should have scored. Thankfully, he came in on a botched double play by the O’s.
Jason Bay is cold again, hitless in his last five games.
Mets go for the sweep tomorrow at 1:35 p.m.
