The New York Mets (7-3) defeated the Atlanta Braves for the fourth straight time this season (5-5) by the score of 6-1. The New York Mets have won 7 of 10 to kick off this season. Dillon Gee pitched great tonight. He allowed just one run on four hits, while striking out five. Dillon Gee is now 1-1 with a 2.92 ERA so far this season. He is really looking like the first have Dillon Gee of last season, and it’s a great sign for things to come. A big time at bat for Ruben Tejada in the third inning: The Mets had a man on third base with one out, and Tejada got him in with a ground ball. This was a huge point in the game because it got the Mets on the board and tied the game. Last season the Mets weren’t converting on these situations. The games biggest turning point: In the bottom half of the fifth inning Jack Wilson hit a ball to deep left field beyond the left field fence, but Jason Bay denied Wilson from a home run by tracking it down and jumping the fence. It was a spectacular catch, and If you remember last season, Jason Bay made the same exact catch in almost the same exact spot… Weird, I know. Following the Jason Bay catch, the Mets had a man on third base with two-outs and the Braves intentional walked David Wright to pitch to Ike Davis instead. However, Ike made Tommy Hansen pay after Hanson threw his fifth straight curveball Ike took him yard. It was a three-run homerun that gave the Mets a 4-1 lead, and they wouldn’t look back from there. In the 9th inning, with the Mets up 5-1, Jason Bay went deep. Bay hit his second homerun of the season, which extended the Mets lead to 6-1. Bay also just missed a homerun on his second at-bat of the game, which was a ball that died on the warning track. Overall this was a great game for the Mets. Gee pitched spectacular, the bullpen pitched well, and the hits were spread out all over the lineup card. Six Mets had hits today. Good Signs:
  • Dillon Gee looked like his 2011 first half self.
  • Ike Davis and Jason Bay are both starting to heat up.
  • The Bullpen has been outstanding all season.
  • Tejada leads the MLB in doubles with 6 doubles.
Things to watch for:
  • Daniel Murphy has cooled off, and is looking a little confused at the plate recently.
  • Josh Thole got called for another catchers interference today, and has really been struggling behind the plate this season.
The Mets won, and were 7-3! Let’s Go Mets! Tomorrow: The Mets will take on the Braves tomorrow with Johan Santana (0-1, 0.90 ERA) taking on Randall Delgado (1-0, 3.60 ERA). First pitch will be at 7:10 PM EDT.
