With OF Juan Lagares on the 15 day DL for the Mets, they called up OF Kirk Neiuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas to play. Kirk did GREAT last night going 3-5 with 3 RBI’s and a run including a 2 run blast. Pitcher Jenrry Mejia got the win for the Mets going 5 strong innings, striking out 3 and only letting up 2 hits, 2 walks, and 0 runs. The Mets won this game because they got HOT early with 3 runs in the 1st inning and a whopping 6 in the 4th! ALL off new D-Backs veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo. The game was scoreless for the remainder of the matchup and the Mets won in a blow-out 9-0 game. The Mets are coming back to life now with 2 straight wins and a 7-7 record good for 3rd in the east. Tonight Dillion Gee will be pitching for NY and he is looking for his 1st win of the season.

The Mets took 2 scares in this game from OF Curtis Granderson and OF Juan Lagares. Lagares was pulled from the game in the 7th from a strained hammy and Granderson was injured after he made a spectacular catch in the outfield but dropped the ball after colliding with the OF wall and stayed in the game but left to reported rib and left forearm injuries.
