The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 3 Marlins 2

The Mets swept the Marlins yesterdayat Citi Field by a score of three to two. After thirteen pitches pinch hitter Justin Turner walked with the bases loaded to end the dramatic come from behind victory.

These are the type of wins that make believers out of people.

Break out the dustpan the Marlins just got swept 🙂

Once again Jonathon Niese pitched extremely well and the bullpen came in and held off the fishes long enough for the ninth inning heroics to occur.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is quickly making a name for himself both at the plate and in centerfield as well.  I like what I’m seeing so far from him.

Sad news yesterday. Mike Pelfrey will be having Tommy John surgery and will be out for at least a year. I’m not his biggest fan but I didn’t want him to end his career with the Mets this way….I wish him all the best.

Up next are the Rockies!

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets beat Phillies 5-0

The New York Mets continued their winning ways with a 5-0 victory yesterday over the Philadelphia Phillies. It’s always great whenever we beat the Phillies and yesterday was no exception.

Jonathon Niese picked up his second win of this very young season and the bullpen once again did their jobs keeping the Philllies hitters at bay. I expected big things this season from Niese and he hasn’t disappointed me in the least whereas I expected nothing from the bullpen and have been pleasantly surprised….perhaps even overjoyed at what they’ve been able to accomplish thus far in this very young 2012 campaign.

David Wright returned with a bang last night going three for five including a first inning dinger that gave Niese all the runs he needed. I’m glad to see Wright in the lineup for however long he remains a Met.

Lucas Duda added a fourth inning shot of his own. I like Duda but I personally think he’s trying too hard to go yard every time he steps up to the plate. I think this is also Ike Davis’ problem as well. They just need to relax and get good swings at the baseball and the rest will take care of itself.

Ruben Tejada continued his hot stroke by getting a couple more hits on the night. He’s quickly making people forget all about Jose Reyes and that is a good thing.

2-0 on the road is a very good thing!

Sunday Mike Pelfrey takes the hill….lets sweep these dudes!
