Mets 10 – Pirates 1 May 9, 2009

The Mets got another good start, this time from John Maine. This is Maine’s third good start in a row after a shaky start to the season. He went 6 innings giving up 1 run on 3 hits and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts. The one run he gave up was a solo homer to opposing pitcher Paul Maholm.

There was a ton of offense for the Mets today. They had 17 hits and 1 walk. Jose Reyes was 3 for 5 with 3 RBI’s and his ninth stolen base of the season. Carlos Beltran was 2 for 5 with a solo homer in the fifth inning that was a bomb! It went into the second deck in left field. That’s a shot.

The game was over early when the Mets put up 5 runs in the fourth inning to make the score 6-1. So the rest of the game was kind of a snoozer. But the Mets did manage to win their sixth straight game and got a win over a team that they should beat.

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.
