Mets 8 – Phillies 0 May 25, 2010

Mets starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Nationals during the first inning of their MLB National League game in Washington

The Mets won their third straight tonight behind big-time pitching from R.A. Dickey and Raul Valdes. Dickey went 6 shutout innings getting out of trouble several times with the Phillies threatening. Valdes came in and threw 3 shutout relief innings. He’s really shown something this season out of the bullpen. Tonight’s game brought his ERA down to 2.86. You won’t get better than that for a long man in the bullpen.

The offense was really consistent throughout the game. The Mets were scoring single runs until they scored 3 in the eighth. The big story on offense was Jose Reyes, who went 3 for 5 with 3 runs and 2 stolen bases. It was like watching the Reyes of two or three years ago. Also Jeff Francoeur finally came alive going 2 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.

The Mets seem to have stabilized with Oliver Perez and John Maine out of the rotation.
