Matt Moore in the office today
I am picking up the game in the top of the 3rd and the Mets lead 1 to 0
Top of 3rd – the walk comes back to haunt Matt along with 2 stolen bases and its 2 to 0 Mets, a solo shot takes the score to 3 to 0 Mets.
Denard Span goes splash (yard) into the bay for a 3 to 1 Mets lead. (splash count is 71 for the year)
Angel Pagan is out of the ball game and waiting for an update.(right groin tightness)
Matt is having too many issues not finding his stuff, top of 4th and 79 pitches. Jake Peavy working in the bullpen. Play review and the runner is safe.
At this point Matt will start the top of the 5th, Jake still getting ready
Joe Panik with a stand up triple to open the home 5th, Blanco with a perfect bunt and is safe. Conor Gillaspie hits into the force getting Panik home for a Mets 3 to 2 lead. Belt with an infield hit, 1st baseman got pulled off the bag by the throw.
Jake Peavy with the office keys, and his first pitch was a strike. A single brings a Mets run home for a 4 to 2 lead. Mets just took Jake for a 3 run homer, 7 to 2 Mets extend their lead.
Jake with a strikeout ( 3rd of the game) a solo shot gave the Mets an 8 to 2 lead
On the way to the shower, Jake tossed the office keys to Will Smith
Bottom of 8th and Belt walks, Crawford with a walk, (former Sox closer) Addison Reed now in for New York. Hunter Pence walks to fill the pond. Nunez with a double and its 2 runs home for an 8 to 4 Mets lead, Joe Panik gets Pence home for an 8 to 5 Mets lead.
