On Air: The Official Blog of WSJU Sports

This week has been a week to remember for New York Mets fans. From back to back walk-ff home run victorys verse the San Francisco Giants to a six run eighth inning come from behind victory against The Washington Nationals tonight, The Amazin’s have shown fight in their bats.

The first seven innings belonged to The Nationals. Adam Dunn belted a three run home run in the first inning off Johnathan Niese, Ivan Rodriguez added two runs batted in and Ian Desmond added a run batted in as well.

But after the top of the eighth inning the rest of the game belonged to Ike Davis, Rod Barajas and newly called up 27 year old Chris Carter. Bay singles to second (3-4 on the night) David Wright doubles, Bay to third and Wright at second. After a throwing error by Desmond, Bay scores and the score is 6-3 Nationals. Franceour would strike out bring up Rod “Mr. Clutch of 2010” Barajas up to bat and he would smack a double into left scoring Wright and Davis. 6-5 Nationals. Alex Cora would bunt and get to first base safely and Barajas would move to third. Pagan then singles scoring Barajas and Cora would get to second. Insert the 27 year old rookie Chris Carter. Carter rips a double scoring Pagan and giving the Mets a 7-6 lead. Bay would be walked and Pagan would score giving the Mets an 8-6 lead and that would be the final score of the game.

A great game ended by an Ike Davis 2 out 9th inning over the dugout grab, his signature catch, and the Mets would win. Solid bat performance by Bay and Wright who both went 3-4 and 2-4 for Barajas.

The Mets pulled it together tonight to save Niese and save themselves from dropping their fourth straight to the Nationals this season. They are 18-15 now on the season and face Washington tomorrow in a rubber match. Mike Pelfrey will pitch for New York and Craig Stammen for Washington.
