MVP

Robert Gsellman, who earned the win in his major league debut. It could have been disastrous, as many of us thought it would be. It wasn’t even close, however, and a microcosm of how the next six weeks would go with the Mets getting extremely effective starting pitching from a couple of unexpected places.

Gsellman went 3 2/3 innings giving up no runs on two hits and three walks with two strikeouts.

BIG honorable mention on the offensive side of things to Jose Reyes, who was 3 for 4 with one RBI, three runs scored and a walk.
