GAME 2 RECAP: Mets Defeat Tigers in Hit Parade, Win 16-9

The final score makes the Mets/Tigers hit parade look more like a JV girls high school basketball game–but don’t be confused, it was indeed a professional baseball game. Neither Chris Capuano nor Phil Coke looked sharp, but it was the bats that did the talking. Every Mets hitter except Jason Bay and Scott Hairston enjoyed multi-hit games. Angel Pagan and Dan Murphy each collected four RBI. Overall, the Mets recorded twenty hits, sixteen runs, and drew seven walks, while only striking-out twice. Can you say, “Two games above .500?” Yeah, it feels good.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Chris Capuano notched his seventh win, but it wasn’t a pretty one. Capuano hurled five innings, giving-up six hits, five runs, zero walks, and six strikeouts.
  • The Mets bullpen was shaky. While Bobby Parnell and D.J. Carrasco contributed scoreless appearances, Pedro Beato, Tim Byrdak, and Jason Isringhausen weren’t so lucky. Beato had the worst outing of all, hurling 1.3 innings, surrendering two hits, two earned-runs, zero walks, and zero strikeouts.
  • Jose Reyes went 2-6 with his thirtieth stolen base.
  • Ronny Paulino, who was batting clean-up (probably due to his history versus lefties), mashed accordingly. Paulino went 4-6 with two doubles, a RBI, and four runs-scored.
  • Jason Bay didn’t hit another grand slam, but he did smack a RBI-single, draw four walks, steal two bases, and score three times.
  • Angel Pagan arguably had the finest offensive day for the Mets. Pagan went 4-6 with two doubles, four RBI, three runs-scored, and his thirteenth stolen base.
  • Scott Hairston only recorded one hit–but it was a three-RBI triple. Hairston also drew two walks and scored a run.
  • Dan Murphy had two very productive singles, knocking-in four RBI total.
