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.

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.
