Mets Game 58: Win Over Braves
Mets 5 Braves 0
So much for the “scary stretch” and fear of a six-game losing streak.
Mets Game Notes
What more can you say about Dillon Gee? He refuses to lose. Gee has the third-highest number of victories among NL pitchers. People keep waiting for him to fall back to earth, but it hasn’t happened yet. This time, he gave the Mets 7 shutout innings, allowing four hits and two walks in a highly efficient, 85-pitch effort.
How about Jose Reyes? He whacked his 10th triple of the year, driving in three runs.
Josh Thole might be out of his slump; he went 2-for-3 with a double.
Additionally, Dan Murphy stayed hot, getting another two hits in four tries.
This was a pretty quick and efficient game. It took 2 hours and 19 minutes, which isn’t that incredible, but the number of pitches each team saw was unusually low — the Mets saw 110, and the Braves saw 111. That’s what happens when pitchers throw strikes.
