The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets 5 Marlins 1

In the sixth inning of last nights ballgame with the Marlins, David Wright launched one into the seats of Citi Field and also put himself into the Met history books by becoming the brand new all-time Met RBI leader and put the final nail into the coffin in  terms of what the Mets should do with their star third baseman.

You pick up that 2013 option right now and you sign this man to a long term deal. That’s what you do if you are the Wilpons.

R. A. Dickey pitched seven strong innings striking out seven Marlins while only walking one. His lone earned run came in the fifth when Marlins second baseman Omar Infante went yard…

Mike Baxter pinch hit for Scott Hairston and responded with a two out double that drove in two….this guy can hit its too bad there’s no place to play him.

Josh Thole extended his hitting streak to eight games….good for him!

Lucas Duda had a couple of hits and an RBI….

Bust out the broom and the dustpan….I feel a sweep coming on!

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets beat Phillies 5-2

I went to sleep last night with the Mets in the lead and I woke up to discover the Metropolitan’s held on to beat the Sillies by a score of 5-2 behind the outstanding pitching of R.A. Dickey and a first inning two run bomb by Jason Bay on a crisp cool night at Citizens Bank Park.

Yes, you read that correctly. Jason Bay hit a monster shot off Cliff Lee for his first home run of the season. He also struck out twice. Enough said there.

R.A. Dickey won his second game in as many starts last night and I’m happy for him. Even if he were to leave NY and pitch for another team I would always root for him. He pitched really well last night and in 14 straight starts where he’s lasted at least 6 innings and given up less then three earned runs.

Ruben Tejada continued to hold his own batting lead-off. He’s my favorite Met this year.

Scott Hairston went yard with a bomb of his own to seal the deal.

Daniel Murphy booted another ball last night. Fortunately for him he can rake because that’s the only reason the Irish Hammer is playing second base.

David Wright was held out of the lineup again last night and I wonder what the deal is? If he can’t swing a bat then he needs to go to the Disabled List. Hopefully we’ll know more today regarding his status.

All in all it was a good night to be a Met fan.

Later today Jonathon Niese takes the hill and hopefully he throws as well as he did against the Braves last Sunday!

The New York Mets 2012 Game Recap: Mets Defeat Braves 4-2

Greetings one and all and happy Easter! I fell asleep after work and missed the entire game. It’s stupid to miss these day games. Hopefully it won’t happen again!

I did wake up to a pleasant surprise….the Mets beat the Braves by a score of 4-2 on a cold and windy day at Citi Field!

Here are the good things that happened

R.A Dickey began his 2012 campaign by registering his first win of the season. Dickey went six innings giving up 5 hits while striking out three and walking four Braves batters. He gave up both of the Braves runs. Well done Mr. Dickey!

The Mets bullpen record three scoreless innings and that is a good sign. Frank Francisco picked up his second save of the new season.

Lucas Duda hit his first two home runs of the season yesterday. This was also his first multi-homerun game of his Major League Career.

David Wright went three for five that included a home run. He is on a tear.

Newly promoted center fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis got his first two Major League hits. Well done Captain Kirk!

Jason Bay got his first hit of the season.

Daniel Murphy is still alive after consecutive starts at second base.

Here are the not so good things that happened 

Josh Thole had his first passed ball of the season.

Ike Davis is still hitless and struck out twice.

The Mets stranded 12 men on base with eight of those men in scoring position.

 

I know it’s still way too early to be getting excited by the Metropolitans early success but it’s nice to be able to say “the undefeated and first place New York Mets”.
