Mets Home Stand Review: June 4-10, 2010

Another Mets home stand, another successful Mets home stand.

The Mets swept the pesky Marlins to start off the festivities at home, and then took two of three from the surprise team of the National League, the San Diego Padres.

Friday, June 4th: Marlins 3, Mets 4
Saturday, June 5th: Marlins 1, Mets 6
Sunday, June 6th: Marlins 6, Mets 7
Tuesday, June 8th: Padres 1, Mets 2 (11)
Thursday, June 10th: Padres 4, Mets 2 (Game 1), Padres 0, Mets 3 (Game 2)

The Mets had something to prove in the first series of this home stand, as they were facing a Marlins team which had owned the Mets so far in 2010, holding a 6-1 record when facing the Metropolitans.

The Mets won a nail-biter 4-3 on Friday night, thanks in part to Hanley Ramirez not running hard on a ground ball which could have tied the game had he gotten to first base in time. The following afternoon, Jon Niese returned from a hamstring injury and pitched brilliantly, allowing just one run in seven innings.

The series finale didn’t look good for New York, as they were down 5-0 going into the bottom of the 6th inning. A 3-run 6th and 7th would tie the game at 6-6, and then Ike Davis would serve up a game-winning RBI groundout in the 8th inning. Continue reading

Mets 2 – Padres 1 June 8, 2010

The Mets came out on top of this one in 11 innings on a solo shot way out into the Pepsi porch by Ike Davis. That was a jump out of your seat moment but Mike Pelfrey was outstanding again through 9 innings. He only gave up 5 hits, 1 run, and no walks, with 6 strikeouts. It’s a shame that it went to extras and he didn’t get the win or complete game.

Other than Davis’ big blast to win it, the Mets as a team had 9 hits and 1 walk. David Wright was 2 for 4 with a double and is up to a respectable .283 avg. now. Angel Pagan was 2 for 5 with a triple and a stolen base. He continues to make plays every single day. And Jose Reyes was 2 for 4 with a big home run to left field to tie it in the seventh. The home run barely made it out and was reviewed. It was initially called a in play but after review it was ruled a home run.

These kind of games are my favorites to watch. I love the pitching duels. Great way to start the home series against the Pads.

San Diego Padres (34-23) t New York Mets (30-27) 7:10 pm

Clayton Richard (4-3 2.87) vs Mike Pelfrey (8-1 2.39)

TV: SNY   Radio: WFAN

What to watch: The Mets and Padres start up a three game series tonight, this time at Citi Field where the Mets are playing extremely well this season. It could be some payback for the Padres who took a series last week in San Diego in dramatic fashion with a walk off grand slam. Richard pitched really well against the Mets in a no-decision going 6 innings and giving up 1 run. Pelfrey got another win last week against the Padres going 8 innings and giving up 1 run. It could be a good pitching match up. The Mets have a new member on their roster tonight too. Jesus Feliciano was called up from Buffalo to replace Omir Santos on the roster. The outfielder was hitting .385 1HR 21 RBI in in 187 AB.

Mets Road Trip Review: May 28th- June 2nd, 2010

Mets' Valdes walks off the field with Wright as Padres' Gonzalez rounds third in the 11th inning during their National League MLB in San Diego

Going 5-1 against last year’s World Series contestants, the Yankees and the Phillies, made believers out of most people in Mets-land that they could ride that momentum into a good road trip.

Those people (including myself) were wrong.

The Mets went 2-4 on their six-game road trip, extending their season-long streak to nine straight road series without a series victory (0-7-2 on the season).

Friday, May 28th: Mets 0, Brewers 2
Saturday, May 29th: Mets 6, Brewers 8
Sunday, May 30th: Mets 10, Brewers 4
Monday, May 31st: Mets 6, Padres 18
Tuesday, June 1st: Mets 4, Padres 2
Wednesday, June 2nd: Mets 1, Padres 5 (11) Continue reading
