Mets Sweep Dodgers With 7-3 Victory
The Mets got a much needed disciplined outing from John Maine. Maine, who has looked like a sinking ship thus far this season, provided his best performance to complete the Mets sweep of the Dodgers.
Maine gave up three runs in six innings, striking out 9, walking three, and allowing four hits. He only had one bad inning, which was the fifth when he allowed a 2 run HR to Russell Martin. Aside from that, Maine was clutch.
David Wright continued his hot hitting by going 2-4 scoring a run.
Francoeur had a key two out double to knock in a run.
Throughout the game, the Mets, as they have of late, picked up runners in scoring position. The picked up RBI's with two outs; Pagan, Francoeur, Cora, and Davis all drove in runs with two outs.
A great finish to a great homestand. Mets are off tomorrow, and will open a three game series against their arch rival, and nemesis, Philadelphia.
