Cant ask for more from your ace. With the chance to win their first series, the Mets turned to Johan and as usual he did not disappoint. Johan went 6.1 innings with 5 punch outs and one earned run allowed for his second win of the season. Johan definitely had his feel for the change up tonight as it danced in and out of the strike zone, accompanied of course by a swing and a miss. Running out of words to describe Johan so lets just just he is just awesome. Im sure he will be the first to say he is glad this one ended in 9 instead of 20.
DAVISMANIA continued tonight as the kid went 3-4 and accounting for 2 runs, including a very heads up play to take advantage of a botched grounder by Fontenot in the 6th. I was pretty critical in regards to the timing of his promotion but this kid is proving me wrong, along with just about every critizism he had coming to the majors(hitting lefties, defense..etc). This kid definitely belongs here and is the classic “spark plug” this team needed to get back on the right track. While there are several members of the Mets who are struggling at the plate right now, its nice to see what a hit looks like once in a while and this kid seems to remind us day after day. Welcome to the MUA club kid, you deserve it!
Rod Barajas gut for blocking Fontenot’s view and lead to the subsiquent botch
Krod for notching his first save in 5 out fashion
Wright for getting a double to knock in Reyes for the first run
