Wright’s 2 HR Leads Mets Over Mariners 8-2

David Wright appeared to make the most of his day off yesterday. He hit two home runs in his first two at-bats to put the game out of reach early. Jose Reyes chipped in with a three run homer of his own in the third inning. From there the Mets cruised to a win.

John Maine was solid but not spectacular tonight going six innings giving up two runs on five hits and two walks. He also had three strikeouts. The bullpen worked three clean innings giving up only one hit.

The Mets avoid a sweep at the hands of the lowly Mariners tonight before beginning a series with the Yankees on Friday.

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.
