The Mets won their fifth game in a row on their first game of a road trip to DC. Chris Young came back from the disabled list to somewhat of a shaky start. He only got through 4.2 innings allowing 3 solo home runs including two of those to Wilson Ramos. Young only allowed 4 hits and 2 walks but started getting pretty wild in the fifth inning. It was definitely time for him to get pulled.

The Mets offense was particularly impressive in scoring their 6 runs in four different innings. They had 12 hits and 1 walk in the game and kept stringing hits together. There was a big surprise in the second inning when Young laid down a safety squeeze scoring Ike Davis. I was so surprised that I thought it might have been a busted play with Davis making an unplanned dash for home.

Davis had 3 more hits in the game including a double to raise his average to .338 and Josh Thole put up 3 RBI’s in the game to lead the offense.

The streaking Mets go for the series win tomorrow night in DC.

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.
