The Mets defeated the Pirates today by a score of 3-1.
This game started off quite nicely for the Amazins’ as they would get a first inning run off of Charlie Morton in the form of a Lucas Duda single. They would add two more runs on an RBI double from David Wright and a sacrifice-fly by Captain Kirk.
Jon Niese was quite good today only allowing one run pitching 7 2/3 and striking out five, it certainly was a bit of a rebound for him. He was able to work mostly without the curve-ball today, throwing only five according to BrooksBaseball.net.
Sorry for the tardy/abbreviated recap, but I just wanted to get it out somewhere near the end of the game. Here are some points of discussion:
- Do you buy into this team being “resilient?”
- Did you like the outfield changes TC made in the ninth inning?
- Did Ike look any better today? I’m actually asking because I didn’t see the game.
- Is using bullet points a lazy way to make this post seem longer?
- I don’t think so.
The Mets will play San Diego at Citi Field tomorrow at 7:10.
