The Mets came out swinging offensively last night against the Phillies, and beat them by the score of 9-1. Jeff Francoeur, Rod Barajas, and David Wright all had HR’s. Johnathan Niese threw a solid outing. Niese went 7IP, gave up 4 hits, an ER, and 7 K’s. Niese was throwing his fastball in, and his curveball effectively. That curveball was also nasty.
Jeff Francoeur had a great night. After that HR, he hit a double. But in the 7th, he was hit by a pitch on the elbow, and left the game after the inning was done. According to reports, he is day-t0-day (X-Rays Negative) and is receiving treatment. Francoeur told reporters he expects to be back in the lineup today for the game against the Phils at 3:10PM EST on Fox (Check your local listings).
