Chris Capuano was victorious in his return to Milwaukee tonight. He did a great job again and, this time, got just enough run support to get a win. He went 6 innings allowing only a Prince Fielder solo shot to center field. The bullpen cleaned up with three perfect innings. Pedro Beato, Jason Isringhausen, and K-Rod didn’t allow a batter to reach base after taking over for Capuano. It was exactly how the Mets would have drawn it up.

The Mets didn’t do a lot on offense. They only had 5 hits and 5 walks in the game. But Jose Reyes came through with a 2-run triple in the seventh inning. He may have scored on an infield play but got thrown out at the plate and didn’t slide.

It’s a good start to the three game series in Milwaukee against a hot Brewers team.

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.
