Game 33 Very Happy Recap

This was a true team win, as the Mets were down big, but once again continued to fight and claw, and battled back to win 8-6, and it could've been even more if Ike Davis didn't miss a grand slam by a matter of inches.

The good:
  • The bullpen was terrific, especially Takahashi, Valdes and K-Rod.
  • D Wright and J Bay combined for 6 hits. Exactly what the middle of the order needed to do
  • C Carter did what he does, HIT, and comes through with a double in his only at-bat.
    • What's even better than that, is that he brought Hulkamania to Citi Field as his entrance song was "I'm a Real American"... AWESOME
  • Rod Barajas hit another clutch double even though it was terribly misplayed by "LF" Josh Willingham
  • As I alluded to above, Ike Davis CRUSHED a ball to the 2nd deck but it was inches foul, just missing a grand slam in the 8th inning.
    • Ike Davis also made another web gem, diving over the dugout rail to end the game
      • Hope Fernando Tatis enjoyed his "grab"
      • Loved K-Rod's response (laughing and pure joy)
 The Bad
  • J Niese was brutal, lasting 4 1/3 innings and allowing six runs and 10 base runners.
    • He needs to fix his mechanics to stay on top of the ball and get back to throwing his signature curve-ball effectively.

The Mets try to win the series today at 1:10 PM. Big Pelf vs Craig Stammen
