Click here for a recap of last night’s game.
In the last two games the Mets have scored 32 runs. That’s the most runs they have scored since 1990. Pretty cool but I’d gladly trade a few of those runs for 1 or 2 where they would count more. Like the time Pedro Martinez pitched a great game and lost 1-0.
At the same time it’s great to see that they are capable of bigger things offensively. And it’s even nicer to see the younger players involved. Jose Reyes, David Wright and Mike Jacobs have all had their share of hightlights in these games. Even Kazuo Matsui had a great play when he stayed in a run down long enough for two runs to score last night.
Not all of the highlights were on offense. Jae Seo (7 IP, 7 H, 2 ER) had another good outing. He’s won all four of his starts since being recalled on August 6. In that span he’s allowed 20 hits, 3 earned runs and walked only 4 in 30.1 innings. For those who don’t want to do the math that’s a 0.89 ERA. That’s a real shot in the arm for this pitching staff.
