Mets 6 – Nationals 2 July 20, 2009

It was hard to believe I was watching the Mets tonight. They looked like a different team than the one that got pummeled in Atlanta. Livan Hernandez went 7 strong innings giving up 2 runs. And the bullpen held up for the final 2 innings.

Sure, it’s the Nationals that they’re playing. But the Nats offense isn’t that bad, although Ryan Zimmerman had the night off.

Jeff Francoeur put on a show going 3 for 4 with a double and a rare Mets home run. For the Mets, 6 runs is an explosion. They weren’t doing it against premier pitching but they’ll take what they can get.

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.
