Love him or hate him, he did what a closer is supposed to do last night. Krod came into the game in the 8th with runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 out to relieve Bobby Parnell. Protecting just a 2 run lead at the time, Krod got the pinch hitter Matt Stairs to ground out. Krod came in and in usual adventurous fashion, got the last 3 outs in the game for his first save of the season. This was a good bounce back after the loss on opening day.
Tron was on fire last night. Showing flashes of 2006, Beltran had his 28th multi homer game and first in a very long time. His two home runs were pretty awesome but it was his misplayed routine flyball that eventually lead to a 3 run rally in the 6th. Beltran may be healthy one day and not the other but there is no denying his presence when things are clicking. I hope we get the Beltran of old more times than not in this administration due to their handling of injuries so far this year(he is not playing today).
Ike Davis…is the man…hit a two run triple that gave the Mets the lead in the 6th
Jose Reyes(finally) gets a hit with runners on in his 10th at bat with runners on
