Mets Game 96: Win Over Cardinals
Mets 4 Cardinals 2

Mets Game Notes
Dillon Gee pitched well, allowing only two runs on three hits in seven innings. He walked two and struck out two in an efficient 96-pitch outing. I think part of his success in this game was due to the fact that none of the Cardinals had ever seen him before. But still, Gee hit his spots and changed speeds well.
Kyle Lohse allowed 13 baserunners in 5 2/3 innings. One thing I did like about Lohse’s outing was his pace — he worked quickly, which keeps the fielders in the game. They needed to be, considering all the base hits he allowed.
Jason Isringhausen notched his first MLB save since 2008. He needs six more to reach 300 in his career.
Jose Reyes returned to collect two hits for the 44th time in 81 games. He still leads the NL in hits, even after missing two weeks of play.
Carlos Beltran also picked right up where he left off, going 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, and a run scored.
