Pitching for the 1st time since August 1st, Ollie P promptly let up a HR to the first batter he faced, Brian McCann.
And Pat Misch showed his upside is a #5 starter (3 innings, 8 hits, 5 runs), as his fastest pitch in the 1st inning was 85 mph. Jamie Moyer is the only person in the majors who throws slower I believe.
The Mets offense struck out 12 times, and D Wright was 0-5. But mark the date down as Luis Hernandez (26 year old non-prospect) got his 1st RBI as a New York Met, which came at the cost of having Ruben Tejada (20 years old) develop. Smart move.
