Mets Game 22: Win Over Diamondbacks
Mets 8 Diamondbacks 4
I feel like I keep writing the same headline, over and over.
The Mets complete the sweep, dusting away the D-Backs in an Easter Sunday victory.
Mets Game Notes
Jon Niese was strong through 7, allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks, striking out 3 in an efficient 95-pitch performance.
The Mets were homer-happy in this game, as David Wright blasted two and Jason Pridie walloped the first of his MLB career. I thought Pridie couldn’t hit?
Ike Davis did not hit a homerun, which was out of character for him. However he did go 2-for-3 with two walks, a double, an RBI, and a run scored.
D.J. Carrasco pitched poorly again coming out of the bullpen and was optioned to AAA after the game. Chris Young will take his place on the roster in time for his start on Tuesday.
Next Mets Game
The Mets get a day off on Monday and then travel to Washington, DC to play a three-game set against the Nationals. Game one begins at 7:05 PM. Chris Young will attempt to keep his right arm attached to his body while Jordan Zimmerman pitches for the Nats.
