Dillon Gee picked up the first win of his 2012 campaign and Ike Davis hit a three run shot to seal the deal. Jason Bay also added a dinger of his own as well as making a home run saving catch.
The bullpen came in and pitched two innings of shutout ball to preserve the win for Gee.
David Wright added another hit last night and has now hit safely in each of his seven games this season. He’s on some kind of tear. I hope he’s able to keep this up.
Ruben Tejada also added a hit and an RBI of his own and the more I see of this kid the more I like. He’s going to be some kind of special player.
I still can’t believe the Braves intentionally walked David Wright to face Ike Davis and boy did Ike make Manager Fredi Gonzalez regret that decision.
Gee pitched terrific last night giving up one run on four hits while striking out five Braves hitters. He also gave up one walk on the night. From what I’ve been able to read Gee had good command of his pitches all night long. That’s good to see and I hope for him that he continues to demonstrate that last year was no fluke.
The Mets need a catcher because Thole and Nikeas aren’t the answer. Neither of them can hit and neither of them play very good defense.
All in all I’m one very happy Mets fan…the Metropolitans are off to a flying start and I’m liking what I’m seeing so far!
I’ll leave you with a video of the grab Jason Bay made last night….
