The Mets finished off the sweep of the Marlins to pay them back for last month’s sweep in Miami. The good thing to see was the Mets coming back from down 5-0 in the sixth inning after another awful start from Hisanori Takahashi. He’s looking more and more like a long man coming out of the bullpen to start the more we see of him. He gave up two big bombs to Dan Uggla and Cody Ross and that was it for him.
The Mets comeback was brought on by something unusual for this team, late inning offense. They put up 12 hits and 6 walks but didn’t score a run before the sixth inning. David Wright was 3 for 5, Angel Pagan was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s and 1 SB, and the hot Jeff Francoeur 2 for 4 with a huge 3-run homer to tie it in the seventh.
It’s good to finally see a comeback win. We haven’t seen a lot of those over the last couple of seasons.
