David Wright powered the Mets to a 8 to 4 victory over the Dodgers last night. His two home runs and four RBI lead the Mets way to their third consecutive victory, the first time they’ve hit a winning streak of three since April 26 through 29. Claudio Vargas earned his second win of the season.
Wright got the Mets going in the third with his first of two two-run homers. Then in the fourth when the inning seemed to be over, catcher interference was called on Russell Martin and the inning extended with only two outs. From there, Jose Reyes got a single, followed by a Luis Castillo double that allowed two runs to score after a throwing error, only followed by Wright second homer.
Vargas hit a little rough patch after the big inning, only allowing the Dodgers to get back into a little. Not much came from it, as Endy Chavez and Brian Schneider provided back to back daggers with RBI singles in the seventh, make it an 8 to 4 ball game which didn’t change from there.
The most alarming thing from last night’s game is that all eight runs came with two outs. Try to wrap your head around that Mets fans. This team, who seems incredibly inept with runners on and two outs, found their way to get eight across in those situations. Great job.
People can comment on how David Wright isn’t “feeling”, but one-third into the season he has 11 home runs and 40 RBI. I’ll take it.
If anyone was watching the game on SNY as I was, you saw they totally cut to commercial before the catcher interference call was made in the fourth, which forced the Reyes at-bat to be missed. Bad job by SNY cutting to commercial before team’s even really leave the field. They also made a little mistake on Sunday during the game on CW11.
But really a great victory. Things feel a lot better than they did on Monday. You have to feel good about things as a Mets fan right now, as things seem to be on the up side. Just stay inspired and keep it going, boys.
