Mets 8 – Giants 6 May 15, 2009

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.

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.

  1. I gave up on this game… It was really ugly really early…

    Kudos for them coming back, but they seem to be coming back late in games because the other team has been making mistakes… it concerns me that they are not flat out beating teams, like they should/could be…

  2. As someone who has been extremely disappointed in David’s play this season, I am thrilled to see signs of his greatness re-emerging. He showed it against Atlanta in a game earlier this week where he was knocked down by a pitch at his head and ripped a hit in that at bat, and he has been that way ever since,I am amazed at 11 steals in 2 games without Jose Reyes.,that is noteworthy,I am also impressed by how they have persevered without Delgado and battled back against Linsecum.
