- Chris Capuano- (W, 9-10) 5.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO, 98 pitches (61 strikes)
- Jason Bay- 3-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI
- Lucas Duda- 2-4, 3 RBI, R
- Angel Pagan- 3-5, 3 R, RBI, SB
Notes: Today’s game in Cincinnati was a sluggfest with both starters, Chris Capuano and Homer Bailey, really struggling. Capuano allowed runs in the first, fourth, and sixth innings, allowing six runs in total. This was really not Capuano’s best day. Bailey allowed nine runs on 12 hits in his four innings of work. He was pulled from the game after just 74 pitches.
The entire Met offense did well today, except for Jose Reyes. Seven of the nine starters had either a run or an RBI, with three players doing both. The Mets jumped ahead in the fourth inning and never looked back. Bay, Duda, and Pagan all had huge games. Maybe this could be the day that Jason Bay comes out of his two-year slump. Wait, what am I saying?
The Mets bullpen was shaky today, allowing three runs to the Reds. Each pitcher , except for Bobby Parnell allowed a run. Here is an overview:
- Manny Acosta- 0.2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 12 pitches (9 strikes)
- Pedro Beato- (H, 7) 1 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 16 pitches (11 strikes)
- Bobby Parnell- (H, 7) 1 IP, 0 ER, SO, 8 pitches (6 strikes)
- Jason Isringhausen- (S, 4) 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, SO, 13 pitches (9 strikes)
So the Mets completed the four game sweep. Wow, I haven’t been able to say that in a while. Go Mets!
Next: Friday at 7:05 at Nationals
Dillon Gee (9-3, 3.75) vs. Chien-Ming Wang (0-0, -.–)
Wow, Chien-Ming Wang! I haven’t heard that name in a while.
