Mets & short swings Pummel Hamels and the Phils

First off nice job by Chris Young with keeping Ryan Howard off guard with being able to neutralize him while Young was still in the game. He did what he needed to do on the mound as well as at the plate. Young became first Mets pitcher to have 2 hits in an inning. It only took 50 years for that too happen and he did it with his first 2 at bats. Mets bats were alive again as they beat the Phillies 7-1 Box Score

Now it might be early for this but kudos goes out to the Mets new hitting coach Dave Hudgens who has seemed to get his philosophy in the heads of some of the Mets hitters. To hear Ike Davis talk about short swings in his approach against Cole Hamels is something you know is from Dave. The Mets always seem to have a field day with Hamels anyway but cant remember the last time the Mets had 2 games in a row where it was basically over early. David Wright looks like he has taken some shorter swings as well as leveling out his swing. He has started off the season on fire with 4 hits and 2 rbi’s last night.

Let us see what the Mets game plan against Blanton is tonight who seems to do well against the Mets.
