Livan Hernandez stunk tonight giving up 5 runs in the first two innings. He did settle down to get through 5 innings giving up 8 hits. The way he was pitching the game looked like it might be over early for the Mets. But the Mets came back again and are showing some real signs of being a difficult team to hold down.
Both Jerry Manuel and Giants manager Bruce Bochy were thrown out of the game by home plate umpire Doug Eddings. He was having a bad game behind the plate tonight and both managers let him know about it.
Tonight was another monster game for David Wright. He was 3 for 5 with 4 RBI’s including a huge bases loaded double that cleared the bases. He’s been red-hot and clutch raising his average to .341. He also added another stolen base tonight, his fifth in the two games against the Giants.
The Mets scored 7 runs from the sixth inning on to mount another come back victory. This team is hot going into two national TV games this weekend and with Johan Santana on the mound tomorrow.
