Go Frenchy Go…Jeff hit a 3 run blast that officially brought the Mets back to tie the game in the 7th. Earlier in the game, Cody Ross hit a 3 run home run that was OBVIOUSLY wind aided, Jeff had a different opinion on his shot:
â€œI know this is a big yard but I knew I got that one,â€ said Francoeur, who is batting .500 (18 for 36) during his 10-game hitting streak. â€œI was sure nothing was going to stop it.â€
Wind or no wind, Frenchy is heating up. Whether or not this leads to a higher spot in the order(I dont think its a good idea) its nice to have the “good” Jeff back. Keep blocking those voices out of your head Jeff!
Tasked with nailing down one of the great comebacks of the season, Francisco Rodriguez came through for his 12th save of the season. Of course Frankie didnt make it easy(he usually doesnt) but the bottom line is he got the job done. Even though my colleague TRS consistently makes the argument that Frankies numbers should inspire more confidence, he still scares the hell out ofÂ me. The reality is though, that his numbers…are pretty good. K-Rod has a 1.19 WHIP with a 2.08 ERA. K-Rod will always be an adventure, lets just hope the bottom line continues to be the same.
Angel Pagan going 2-4 with 2 RBI’s
David Wright going 3-5
Rod Barajas going 2-4
Pedro Feliciano for coming in and ending a Marlin threat on a 3 pitch strike out
