Mets 3 – Braves 2 August 3, 2010

July 22, 2010 Los Angeles, CA..New York Mets Jeff Francoeur  in the fifth inning in action during the Major League Baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium July 22, 2010 in Los Angeles, California..The Dodgers defeat the Mets 2-0.Louis Lopez/CSM.

The Mets got another solid start from R.A. Dickey going 6 innings and giving up only 2 runs. It’s amazing how consistent he’s been. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop but it hasn’t happened. Manny Acosta had a really good relief appearance back in Atlanta going 1.2 scoreless innings.

On offense, the Mets had 9 hits and 2 walks. Luis Castillo was the only player with 2 hits in the game including a double. Chris Carter had a big pinch hit RBI single in the seventh inning to tie it up. Then Jeff Francoeur hit a solo homer to right off Billy Wagner to win it in the top of the ninth. He’s been awful lately, so it’s nice to see him do something positive back home in Atlanta.

The Mets and Braves will play the rubber game of the series tomorrow night.

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.
