During the New York Mets 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers last night, right-hander Chris Young tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits, en route to his second victory of the 2012 season:

Young retired the first nine batters he faced — striking out three — before hitting his only rough patch of the game in the bottom half of the fourth.  After three-straight hits allowed the Dodgers to tie the game at 2-2, the 6’10″ right hander retired the next three batters to end the frame and the L.A. rally.  Young went on to toss 2 1/3 scoreless innings before giving way to the Mets bullpen.

Following the game, his manager, Terry Collins, told reporters you know what your going to get from Chris, saying:

“He stabilizes the back end of that rotation, you know what you’re going to get from him — six or seven quality innings and he’s going to keep you in a game. [General manager] Sandy [Alderson] has said many times he’s never seen this guy get roughed up. And you look up and he never has. They might get two [runs]. They might get three, but you’re always going to be in the game. For a guy pitching in that situation that really helps your staff a lot.”

Since making his return from shoulder surgery, the 33-year-old starter has really solidified this NY rotation.  In his five starts for the Mets in 2012, Young is yet to allow more than three earned runs.  He is 2-1 with 18 strikeouts  while allowing 11 earned runs over 30 innings of work; including three-straight quality starts:
