Game 3 Recap: Mets Smack Around Rockies, 9-5


The game was rained-out yesterday, and almost the same last night, but somehow the show went on, and the Mets took the win. Neither starting pitcher looked solid, with Jon Niese hurling 6.3 innings, giving-up seven hits, five earned-runs, two walks, and three strikeouts. In the series finale, the Mets bats did the talking–and Carlos Beltran’s bat in particular. Beltran smacked three two-run home-runs. It’s becoming hard to remember that he was ever considered a has-been.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Carlos Beltran went 3-5 with three two-run home-runs. That’s six RBI and three runs-scored, folks.
  • Jose Reyes knocked in the other two RBI with a single. He was also caught stealing.
  • Jason Bay stole two bases off a single.
  • Jon Niese pitched 6.3 innings, giving-up seven hits, five earned-runs, two walks, while striking out three. He was awarded the win, though he barely deserved it.
