Mets Game Notes

I’m not gonna lie — I zipped through this game on the DVR after the fact. The only reason did that much was because I was intrigued by the fact they scored five runs without David Wright, Marlon Byrd, and John Buck. Luckily, they had Jonathon Niese in the lineup, who did a great impersonation of Cody Webster.

Niese was brilliant on the mound, hurling a three-hit shutout, and drove in three runs to help his own cause. Something tells me that for the Mets to win more than they lose going forward, the pitchers will need to step up similarly.

That’s all I have. Please post your notes in the comments.
