Mets Record: 25-28
Key Moment In The Game: The key moment was the bottom of the 7th inning when Josh Thole hit a two run scoring double to break a 3-3 tie. The Mets took a 5-3 lead at the time and they never looked back.
Game Ball: Angel Pagan: 3-5 | 1 RBI | 1 Run and a great catch in the 9th inning to rob a hit.
Dillon Gee: 7 IP | 5 H | 3 ER | 8 SO. Gee is now 5-0 this season.
Daniel Murphy: 3-5 | 1 RBI | 2 Runs
Mets Offense: 15 hits today. Very impressive considering there was no Reyes, Wright or Davis in the lineup.
Before the game it was announced that Jose Reyes found out this afternoon that his grandmother passed away. He is being placed on the Bereavement List (minimum 3 days – maximum 7 days).
As a reminder you can find me on Twitter and Facebook chatting it up with Mets fans during the game.
