Mers Top Rays

There was something in the air that night

The stars

were bright, fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose...

Last night Fernando Nieve pitched his second consecutive strong game, in leading the Mets to a 5-3 victory over the defending AL Champions, Tampa Bay Rays.

Nieve pitched six innings, giving up one run on three hits while striking out four.

Francisco 'Pelotas' Rodriguez closed out the Rays in the ninth. Bobby Parnell was once again less than ordinary, surrendering 2 runs in .2 innings pitched.

Brian Schneider hit a three run HR, his first of the season, and Daniel Murphy had another three hits, raising his avg. to .256.

Today the Mets, weather permitting, will continue their series against the Rays. Johan 'All Business' Santana will face James Shields. Metsfan73, Long Island Met Fan, and Jobu will be attending the game, starting off tailgating around 1:30. Come by and say hi.
