Mets 5 – Phillies 0 May 26, 2010

Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

The Mets shut out the Phillies again tonight behind the second strong start of Hisanori Takahashi. He went 6 IP giving up only 5 hits and no walks. Granted, the Phillies aren’t doing anything on offense right now. But it’s still a good start for Takahashi. His season ERA is down to 2.13 after tonight.

The Mets made the most of their runners on offense. They only had 7 hits and 4 walks but managed to put up 5 runs. Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan had 2 hits apiece, including Reyes’ first homer of the season. And Pagan and Luis Castillo had 2 stolen bases each. Rod Barajas came through again with 3 RBI’s on a 1 for 3 night with a big double and a sac fly.

You could say the best thing about these two games is shutting out the Phillies, but I think the hot offense of Reyes is the biggest sign of good things to come.

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.
