The New York Mets explode in Win

The New York Mets defeated the St. Louis Cardinals today by the score of 17-11. The big buzz coming out of this game is Ike Davis who is the top prospect and first baseman hitting a absolute bomb for a grand slam. He has looked great and it is almost coming too easy to him. The Mets as tempted as they might be and it is only 3 games so you have to be careful are better served with him in the minors and if he tears it up down there then bringing him up in the summer. Here are the summaries of the pitching and then the rest of the offense. R.A. Dickey got the start for the Mets and allowed 7 hits and 5 runs in 2 2/3 innings. He also walked 2 and struckout 1. Tobi Stoner pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up a hit and a run. He also struck out 1. Jack Egbert pitched 2 innings giving up a hit and 0 runs, walking 2 and striking out 3. Sean Green pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up 2 hits and 4 runs with 3 walks. That was not a good outing for him and Dickey just couldn't get his knuckler going with the wind today. I would imagine that early on also for a knuckleball pitcher must be really hard because it is a feel pitch. Clint Everts got the save with 1 1/3 innings of 1 run ball. He did give up 2 hits and had 2 strikeouts. There is a lot to talk about with the Mets offense, David Wright hit a 2 run homerun and had a walk. Gary Matthews Jr. was 2 for 2 with a rbi. Luis Castillo was 2 for 2 with a walk and a rbi, Jason Bay had a walk but was 0 for 2 in his debut. Daniel Murphy had a rbi and Jeff Francoeur was 1 for 3. Omir Santos was 3 for 3 with 2 rbi's. The Mets said that Jose Reyes is ok and will play tomorrow and they also signed reliever Kiko Colero this afternoon. He last pitched with the Marlins, he is a pretty good pitcher that should serve as their 8th inning guy. The Mets will play the Florida Marlins at home tomorrow.
