The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets Defeat Braves 7-5

Due to some shaky internet I missed last nights game as well and let me tell ya I missed a doozy. Jonathan Niese took a no-hitter into the seventh, the bullpen held on for dear life and the Mets swept the 3 game series with the Braves on a much warmer day than yesterday at Citi Field.

Bust out the dustpan….the Braves just got swept 🙂

Here are the good things that happened

The Mets swept the Braves and gave their fans reasons to cheer. That’s always a good thing.

Jonathan Niese flirted with a no-hitter until the seventh inning when the wheels fell off and he couldn’t find the plate.

Shortstop Ruben Tejada went four for five and had two RBI’s….Jose who 🙂

Daniel Murphy collected two more hits….that boy can rake!

David Wright had another hit and another RBI….he’s on a roll!

Jason Bay collected a hit and an RBI.

The bullpen did their jobs once again and Frank Francisco got his third save of the season.

Daniel Murphy is still alive.

Here are the not so good things that happened

Lucas Duda dropped a fly ball in the seventh inning…tough sun but an error is an error and never a good thing.

Ike Davis is still hit-less on the season.

The Mets are 3-0 and I’m excited. This team is going to score runs and if they get the pitching like they did this weekend…well, look out.
