The Mets beat the Cubs today at Citi Field 3-1.
Why the Mets won:
Dillon Gee was dominant. He tossed eight innings and allowed just one run on seven hits. He also didn’t walk a single batter.
Why the Cubs lost:
The Cubs aren’t dangerous offensively, as they showed today.. That’s why they are a last place team.
- Ike Davis hit another home run today. Is he developing into a true slugger or what?
- Jordany Valdespin hit a home run for the second consecutive day in the second inning. Valdespin has shown some pop since coming to queens, hitting four homers in less than 75 at-bats.
- Bobby Parnell threw a scoreless ninth inning to record his second save of the season. Although it was a pretty close call, he came through, thanks to that sensational catch by Ruben Tejada. What a great catch.
