GAME 2 RECAP: Mets Take Second Game from Reds, 8-6

The Mets apparently have the Reds’ number. The team took their second game in a row, behind an excellent offensive performance (twelve hits and eight runs). Dan Murphy and Jason Pridie were the main source of RBI, with four plated runners each. Justin Turner chipped-in his nineteenth double of the season too. It was a good thing the Mets bats came alive, as starter Jonathon Niese was not sharp. Niese hurled five mediocre innings, giving-up six hits, five earned-runs, two walks, and five strikeouts. Tim Byrdak shut the door in the ninth for his fourth career save. The Mets improved to 52-51.

METS GAME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Jonathon Niese pitched five innings, surrendering six hits, five earned-runs, two walks, and five strikeouts. Niese now has ten wins.
  • Justin Turner went 2-5 with a double, and run-scored. Turner also committed his ninth error.
  • Carlos Beltran went 1-3 with two walks, RBI, and three runs-scored.
  • David Wright went 2-5 with a RBI.
  • Dan Murphy led the offensive charge with three hits, two RBI, and a run-scored. Murphy now has forty-six RBI.
  • Jason Pridie, who again was subbing for Angel Pagan, went 2-5 with a double, and two RBI.
