THE ANIMAL IS HERE! Carter rewarded Omar for finally calling his number up to the show by capping off a rally that will be remembered for some time. Figures with the way this season has gone, the new guys are the ones that jump start this team. Carter was asked for daily around the Mets bloggosphere and this is why. Carters double late in this game gave the Mets the lead for the first time in the game. This game was one that could have easily got away, not with this team…this team is different.
On a night where the Mets pulled of an improbable win from the grips of defeat, they did not have time or patience for one of K-Rod’s heart stopping save shows…and K-Rod obliged. Fransisco Rodriguez had a very quiet 1-2-3 9th inning to record his 5th save of the season. Im sure every Met fan was relieved to see K-Rod have an event free 9th, their blood pressure and heart could not have taken another wild wild west showdown for a save after what they saw an inning before.
David Wright and Jason Bay for getting the party started. They both went 3-4
Rod Barajas and Jeff Francoeur for their 2 RBI a piece night
Hisanori Takahashi, Manny Acosta and Raul Valdez for 3.2 innings of scoreless relief
