Box Score: Click here for the complete box score.
Mets Record: 1-1
Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the top of the 10th when David Wright singled in the go ahead run to break a 3-3 tie. The Mets went on to win 6-4.
Game Ball: David Wright: 3-5 | 2 RBI | 2 R.
Jon Niese: 7 IP | 4 H | 2 ER | 3 SO. Niese was taken out after 87 pitches, which I don’t understand why that was done but it all worked out in the end.
Josh Thole has a nice night at the plate: 3-4 | 1 RBI.
Brad Emaus: 1-4. Emaus collected his first major league hit tonight.
Francisco Rodriguez blew a 3-2 lead in the 9th inning. He ended up getting the win tonight.
Blaine Boyer collected the save.
Willie Harris is off to a good start this year. He came in the 10th inning and got a big pinch hit, driving in 2 runs.
The Mets played their first extra inning game of the season (10 innings).
Terry Collins got his first managerial win since 1998.
Props to fellow blogger/twitter buddy Daily Stache who kept the faith after Rodriguez blew the save in the 9th. He said on twitter “The Mets Will Win, dont worry” and he was right
