The Mets got another solid start from R.A. Dickey and came up with a big ninth inning win in San Francisco. Dickey went 7 innings and allowed only 2 runs on 7 hits and no walks. Both runs were given up to Nate Schierhotlz on a sac fly in the fourth inning and a solo homer in the sixth inning. The homer was into McCovey Cove too.

The Mets scored in the fifth inning on an Angel Pagan 2-run homer. Carlos Beltran and Daniel Murphy both had 3 hits in the game. The game was tied 2-2 going into the ninth. Scott Hairston led off the inning with a solo homer off Brian Wilson in dramatic fashion. The Mets went on to put up three more hits in the inning off three Giants relievers. It was a big late inning win for the Mets.

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.
