The Mets wasted no time jumping on Galarraga when, after a Murphy walk in the first inning, Wright took him deep for his 4th home run giving the mets a 2-0 lead- he wouldn’t be done.
It would be the bottom of the third the Mets would strike again and basically put the game to bed. With David Wright getting on base via an error and Beltran moving him to third on a booming double, Davis would be intentionally walked, Thole would would hit a sac fly extending the Met lead to 3-0. It would be Jason Pridie would make the game a laughter when he would go yard for the first time hitting a 3 run home run into the Met Bullpen.
David Writght would go yard again in the bottom of the fouth with a shot that would just clear the left field wall. Davis would add to the lead hitting an RBI single that would extend the lead to 8-1.
Although the D-Backs would score 4 runs, the Mets were in complete control of the game from the first inning inning on, which was nice to see.
Side notes: David Wright going yard is a real encouraging sign that he’s locked in. I liked the fact that Niese went late into the game giving the bullpen a rest again. The Mets take on the Nationals next, a team that beat them 2 out of the 3 the last time they met. Personally, I would like to see the Mets sweep, but I’m slightly optimistic, 2 out of three would be just fine.
Happy Easter Everyone and to my mom, Happy Birthday!
