The Mets won in dramatic comeback fashion tying the game off Mariano Rivera in the ninth and winning it in the tenth. They avoided a home sweep by the Yankees and head to Los Angeles with some good feelings. R.A. Dickey pitched really well going 5 innings and allowing only 1 run. But he had to leave the game with glute tightness, so we’ll have to see if that affects his next start. Dickey has shown he can work through injuries before so, hopefully, it isn’t anything serious.

The Mets had 9 hits and 4 walks in the game led by Daniel Murphy going 3 for 5 with 1 RBI. Jason Bay had the big hit in the 10th inning to win it. But the Mets have Ramiro Pena to thank for the win with errors at shortstop in the ninth and tenth innings to allow the Mets to tie and win the game.

The Mets are off to LA for a four game series before heading to San Francisco.

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.
