Mets 8 – Indians 4 June 16, 2010

June 16, 2010 - Cleveland, OHIO, UNITED STATES - epa02206016 Jon Niese of the New York Mets delivers a pitch against the Cleveland Indians in the first inning of their game at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, 16 June 2010.

The Mets won their sixth straight game… And they’re doing it on the road! Jonathon Niese got it done again for his third straight win. This didn’t compare to his last start which was a complete game 1-hitter. But it was a nice start going 7 innings and giving up 3 runs. That’s solid.

The Mets offense was clicking again with 14 hits but no walks. Angel Pagan had a big game going 3 for 5 with 1 run, 3 RBI’s, and 1 stolen base. The Mets put up 5 runs in the third inning and never looked back.

Jason Bay left the game with a quad contusion and is day to day. He ran into Andy Marte while legging out a chopper in the infield. It didn’t look too serious but Jesus Feliciano took over in left field.

The Mets go for the second straight series sweep tomorrow night.

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.
