GAME 2 RECAP: Mets Surprise Braves With Late Surge, Win 5-0


Mets fans all had to do double-takes to make sure they weren’t mistaken, as the Mets pounced on the Braves in the seventh inning, and eventually won the game. Both Jair Jurrjens and Dillon Gee pitched terrific, but only the latter was rewarded for his efforts. Gee hurled seven scoreless inning, giving-up just four hits, two walks, while striking-out two batters.

The Mets offense awoke in the seventh inning, starting with a key  error on a Jason Bay groundball by defensively-steady Alex Gonzalez. The bases were then loaded after Josh Thole doubled, and Ruben Tejada was hit-by-a-pitch, paving way for a pinch-hot-RBI-single by Jason Pridie. Jose Reyes then stepped up, and put the nail in the coffin with a three-RBI triple. Justin Turner capped the Mets hit parade with a RBI-sacrifice fly, making it five runs for  win-deprive New York Mets.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Dillon Gee pitched seven inning, giving-up just four hits, zero runs, two walks, while striking-out two batters. Gee improved to a franchise-best 6-0 (for a starting pitcher).
  • Jose Reyes hit a three-RBI triple to seal the Mets win. It was his tenth triple of 2011.
  • Justin Turner collected his twenty-third RBI with a sacrifice fly.
  • Josh Thole went 2-3 with a double, and run-scored.
