The kid deserved a win. At the very least he deserved not to lose but neither worked out after the Met scratched out just 3 hits and Tejada’s error saddled Niese with the loss.
Niese and others though Maybin was clearly out at second but replays didn’t confirm that. The throw beat him but unless you tag the runner you should t get an out based on when the ball arrives.
I thought he was safe. The best case scenario was a tie so although Niese wasn’t happy I think it was the right call.
Met bats were quiet but at least Duda keeps on keeping on with a double and pair of RBI’s. In what is sure to be a light spending winter, or maybe all to Reyes none to anyone else Duda sure looks like he’s playing his way into a starting job in 2012.
