Mets Sweep Double-Header Against Marlins; 3-1, 5-1
Nice start by Dickey with seven shutout innings. Duda and Evans combine for five hits, and the Mets score two just enough to win 2-1 in the first game of the double-header.
RA Dickey pitched another gem today. With a weekend full of rain and no Mets baseball, it was nice to get a win off the bat, and good to see it didn’t affect the pitchers at all. Seven shutout innings for RA with seven hits, one walk, six Ks. He’s now 6-11 with a 3.57 ERA, but he’s better than what his numbers show right now. Definitely a nice pitcher to have in the rotation. Also, being able to throw 100+ pitches each outing without tiring is nice too.
Izzy pitched a hitless inning in relief, striking the side out in order. Parnell still yet to have a comfortable outing as the closer pitched an inning of work with one hit, a homerun, to give up the only Marlins run. Parnell got one K and his second save of the season.
Not much offense being a 2-1 win and all, but Evans and Duda combine for five hits and two runs. Turner and Thole were the RBIs.
Bay is 2-for his last-40. Yikes.
RA Dickey with a nice scoreless outing.
Dillon Gee continues on the nice starting pitching for the Mets, with one run in six innings. Bullpen holds up, and the offense delivered. Mets sweep the double header and get on a four game win streak with a 5-1 win.
Dillon Gee continues on the nice starting pitching for the Mets. After Dickey’s nice start in the first game, Gee put out a nice outing himself. Six innings, six hits, one run, two walks, and two strikeouts. 101 pitches thrown. Twelve wins for the rookie. Nice.
Beato and Acosta combine for two innings in relief. One walk, one K for Beato, three Ks for Acosta.
Parnell pitched the ninth inning with one hit, and one K.
Game two Mets offense did a little better, with five runs on eleven hits.
Jose Reyes returned from the DL in the second game and went 1-4 with a run scored. Welcome back, Reyes!
Wright went 2-4, with a double and two RBIs.
Nick Evans had two more hits in the second game, four in the day, with a run scored.
Dillon Gee with a nice start and gets his 12th win.
Mike Pelfrey and Javier Vazquez face-off in another Mets-Marlins game. Game time, 7:10 PM.
