Perez Silences Marlins For Mets Win 3-0

Oliver Perez resumed his brilliant second half pitching against the Florida Marlins going seven shutout innings. He gave up only two hits, three walks, and had eight strikeouts. Aaron Heilman pitched the final two innings flawlessly for his first save of the season. He actually looked completely dominating.

Gary Cohen said during the TV broadcast that pitching coach Dan Warthen had been working with Heilman on standing more straight up. Hopefully, Heilman can replicate the type of performance he had last night.

The Mets runs were scored on a pair of home runs by David Wright and Carlos Delgado.

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. Hey man. I like the changes made the site. It looks really good!

    Mets are catching fire again. I saw that win they had over the Padres and they really gutted it out. How about Wright getting his first career walk off? I just thought he had done that before. Anyway, the Mets are playing some good ball right now even though they couldn’t get Santana a win.

    I never thought the Marlins would still be in the hunt with the Braves playing spoiler. We go out and win a series in Arizona that doesn’t even mean squat! Oh man!

    Nice pitching from Perez yesterday. The Marlins series will be a big one for y’all.

  2. Both of them were dominating, At times Ollie had stuff that no team could hit, With Aaron–it is truly was and is adventure in the most broad terms one can use for that word. As Mets fans we can hopefully, like most good adventures, be that when the adventure go good.
