Mets Game 118: Win Over Reds
Mets 8 Reds 4
Mets save up all their offense for the final game. Why didn’t they put that Harvey kid in the lineup in the first two games?
Mets Game Notes
Matt Harvey did it all – pitched 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball, hit a double, and drove in two in leading the Mets to victory in very Tom Seaveresque fashion. But we’re not making any comparisons, of course.
The Mets offense exploded for 8 runs on the evening, and Frankie Francisco imploded for 3 to keep things interesting at the end. In addition to Harvey’s wallbanger, Ike Davis and Jason Bay put balls over the wall. Yes, Jason Bay! I think he’s broken out of his three-year slump!
No hits but two runs scored by Kelly Shoppach in his Mets debut. Methinks his contribution went beyond the boxscore.
Sorry for the short post; I’m at a conference in Oregon for work until Monday so the recaps will be brief and likely late — help me out in starting the conversation in the comments, OK? Thanks.
Next Mets Game
The Mets open a weekend series with the Nationals on Friday night at 7:05 p.m. Johan Santana takes the hill against Ross Detwiler.
