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.
