Beltran 2 HR’s Power Mets Over Nats 9-7

Brandon Knight did a decent job pitching five innings and giving up two runs. Then the disaster that the Mets call a bullpen took over. It took seven relievers to stumble through the final four innings giving up five runs along the way.

Carlos Beltran lit up the Nats pitchers for two homers. And Jose Reyes led off the game with a homer as well. The Mets had 10 hits in the game and four were home runs.

Apparently, every game is going to be a nail biter even when the Mets score nine runs. This is no way to prepare for a serious playoff run.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
