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.
