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.
