Mets Game Notes
And boy did he earn it — he shut out the Fish through seven, allowing 5 hits and 3 walks, striking out 7. In this particular game, he was very good (but still not outstanding — sorry Bob Ojeda).
Lucas Duda hit his 10th homer of the season, a prodigious blast. Did you realize the Mets had no one with at least ten homers until then? Ironic, isn’t it, that Sandy Alderson has gone out of his way to acquire players who supposedly can hit homeruns, and build a roster around the long ball?
