Mets Game Notes

Unfortunately I missed this game due to being engaged in a business convention. However from I understand, Jonathon Niese was outstanding. Please post your comments in the comments section.

    Both Edwin Jackson and Jon Niese were outstanding. The Mets bullpen did their job, though Parnell made us sweat. Even after a number of rough outings Collins went back to Francisco as his closer. A nice catch by Baxter in RF helped. Frankie seemed to get on a roll after that. Also must mention another good outing by Rauch.
