Mets Game 131: Win Over Dodgers
Mets 11 Dodgers 3
Not just a win, but an old-fashioned spanking!
Mets Game Notes
The charge was led by Lucas Duda, who blasted two homeruns, and, of all people, Ruben Tejada, who reached the seats for the third time this season. Travis d’Arnaud also popped a solo shot — and guess what? He has a dozen dingers this year. That didn’t seem likely back in May, did it?
Bartolo Colon returned from inaction without missing a beat, performing his usual artistry of painting the corners for six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk.
Oh, and the Mets turned a triple play!
This game might turn out to be the highlight of August, though there are still six games left this month.
Next Mets Game
The Mets batters, I’m sure, are tired from swinging, so luckily they have the day off on Monday as they travel back to the Right Coast. The Mets host the Braves in Flushing on Tuesday at 7:10 PM. Dillon Gee goes to the hill against Alex Wood.
