Holy Crap - not only have the Mets won 5 of 6 to climb a game over .500, while scoring 36 runs across 3 games but they also ended their Grand Slam drought in… well, Grand fashion by clubbing Salamis in back to back innings.
Shockingly enough it was J-Bay who launched the first Granny in 2 years before Beltran foowed an inning later.
I hate to be a wet blanket but let’s stop short of declaring Bay out of his slump. A 4 run shot is exciting and all but he finished just 1-5 and actually lowered his avg to .234
Reyes somehow got HOTTER than he’s been going 4-4, BB, 3R and SB.
Possibly the best news of the night was Angel Pagan who went 3-3, RBI, 2BB, 2R and SB. I see Pagan as our secret weapon and if he’s hot the Mets are a very dangerous squad.
I’m already predicting a big series in the BX for Pagan.
Shout to Thole who cracked his first HR of the year. Josh remains only 3 bombs behind Bay!
Did anyone else catch a glimpse of Duda’s crazy looking hair in the dugout after one of the Grand Slams? I forget which bomb it was but a huge fan of Lucas’ hair was sticking straight up while the rest of it was looking very much like a bowl cut - lol. I’m gonna have to keep an eye on Duda’s hair style - he may need to step up his game now that he’s in the bigs - lol.
