Mets Sweep Braves With Dramatic 5-4 Victory

The Mets swept the Braves in this three game series with a tremendous win in the bottom of the ninth. David Wright doubled in the inning and Carlos Delgado drove him in with a line drive to left field that Omar Infante lost in the lights.

Pedro Martinez went seven innings giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk. He also had six strikeouts. His first pitch of the game was crushed for a homer by Yunel Escobar. This is the kind of performance that we can expect from Pedro on a regular basis at this point. He’s an average pitcher.

Luis Ayala did a nice job in relief to finish the eighth and cruise through the ninth.

The offense came from Carlos Delgado with a 5 for 5 night. His first five hit game in ten years. He also had three RBI’s including the game winner. David Wright also had three hits including a solo homer in the fifth and the clutch double in the ninth.

The down side is that the Mets left nine runners on base in the game, but a win is a win.

The Phillies lost to the Nationals so the Mets take a 2.5 game lead in the division.

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.
