Days after receiving the dismal diagnosis of David Wright’s spinal stenosis, the Amazins answer back in a big way.
The Mets current home stand sweep against the Phillies began on Memorial Day with the sweet scent of Bartolo Colon on the mound. The roly-poly 42 year-old pitcher notched his major league tying seventh win, while poking a single for good measure.
After getting pillaged by the Pirates, Wilmer Flores and friends have made their fans believe that NY’s 27-21 start is not a fluke. The shaky shortstop’s defense may not be all there, but his offense is all that and more.
Monday night Flores blasted a 3 run tie-breaking homer, while Tuesday he saved rookie reliever Hansel Robles hide with a walk off single, after Robles unraveled, making a mess of Jason deGrom’s seven inning masterpiece.
And tonight, for their final act, Noah Syndergaard made Philly look silly scattering six hits in a 7-0 shutout, along with his perfection at the plate – two singles, and a 430 ft. solo shot to straight away center field.
Honorable mention shout outs to Cuddyer, Duda, Murphy, and Granderson for three consecutive days of clutch hitting. Here’s lookin’ at reeling in the Marlins for three more.
