We might as well start calling Philly Comeback City since the Mets have now comeback on the Phillies on consecutive days.
I’m not sure what’s more shocking, the fast start the Mets jumped out to or their ability to bounce back from last week’s tailspin to suddenly be 4 games over .500 and a mere 1.5 games out of first.
Either way Terry Collins deserves TONS of credit for the no fear, never quit Met attitude.
Wright hustled his ass off to stay in a rundown long enough for Nieuwei to draw a thow that eventually went down the line. Med shrewdly pointed out the 1st baseman’s failure to close on Wright for rundown.
This poor bastard Ike Davis is really a mess… Again. I though he was showing a pulse last week but he’s back in the crapper with a .167 avg. Still such a shame that ridiculous injury that A - never should’ve happened. Had he or Wright called for the ball, or Pelfrey directed traffic they never collide and Ike doesn’t get hurt.
Bautista was serviceable allowing 4R, 2ER in 5.1 IP. Certainly not impressive but ya gotta think he did enough to keep from getting bounced from rotation.
Everytime I’m ready to start getting on Duda he comes through with some hits and rbi. I can’t wait for this kid to find his groove b/c its gonna be scary.
I love beating Philly in Philly. Those last place mutts.
