Jon Niese and three relievers combined on a 7-hit shutout of the Twins to win the series today. Niese returned to outstanding form today. He was in complete control through 6 IP allowing only 4 hits.
The Mets offense really pounded the Twins pitchers with 14 hits and 1 walk. They had 3-hit games from Jesus Feliciano, David Wright, and Jeff Francoeur. Most of their scoring was from three home runs by Wright, Francoeur, and Ike Davis. Francoeur was a triple away from the cycle today too.
The Mets take another series 2-1 and finish the home stand at 4-2.
