Game 3 Recap: Mets Take Final Contest from Astros, 9-1

By Unknown author

For the first time since the Marlins win, the Mets were actually a pleasure to watch. Chris Capuano pitched a gem, hurling seven innings of six-hit, one earned-run, two walk, and four strikeout baseball.

The Mets offense was arguably even more impressive, roughing-up Astros stater J.A. Happ for six runs on six hits.  Mike Nickeas, David Wright, and Ike Davis led the charge, all connecting for home-runs. Even Jason Bay, who sat-out the first eighteen games with a rib cage injury, went 1-4 with a double and two runs scored. The win improves the Mets record to 6-13.
