Jose Reyes continues to look like the player we all fell in love with as he came up huge tonight with a double to start a rally in the 8th and tacked on an RBI in the 9th. In the 8th, Pagan followed Reyes’ double with a 2 RBI hit to put the Mets up 3-0 and lock up the Mets 7th consecutive road victory and 8th win overall. Hisanori Takahashi threw 6 more shutout innings against the Yanks to give the Mets their 3rd victory in 4 games this year in the subway series.
It was nice to see the Mets beat a real team on the road as this was there first test after beating up on the O’s and Tribe. However, beating up on those bad teams can increase that confidence and the Mets continue to roll. Now all we can hope for is the Mets to pick up another win in the Bronx and clinch a great road trip. Big Pelf and Phil Hughes should give us a great game tomorrow in which could be a battle between future #1’s in New York. A great story to unfold tomorrow for sure….LETS GO METS!
