Good for him… Kirk Nieuwenhuis had the game of his life… He was on base six times, going 4-for-4 with a pair of walks, three runs scored and five RBIs… Wow… Are you kidding me??? Juan Lagares also had a nice game going 2-for-3 with a walk and three ribbies, while Eric Young has a pair of hits and score three runs. The Mets totaled 14 hits and went 7-for-22 with runners...
