Dickey & Bullpen solid as Mets win 2-1
After Dickey was able to get through jams with the help of great play by Jose the Mets had Mike O Connor pitch the 7th , Izzy pitch the 8th and K Rod pitch the 9th.
Izzy's innings was unbelievable . He was able to strike out Teixeira then A Rod and get Cano to ground out. On 12 pitches no less. The A Rod strike out was on a cutter away that A Rod just flailed on. Impressive.
A Quote from Terry Collins from the Daily News about Isringhausen "had his best stuff and best command...and what a night to bring it out"
From the NY Post "That's what you live for," Isringhausen said. "That's why I'm here: the competition of facing three of the best hitters in baseball, in my mind.
K-Rod went right after the hitters in the 9th. 10 pitches later the Mets had a win and K Rod notched his 15 save. The Mets are at the moment at .500 they are 17-9 since starting the season 5-13.
For a nite us Mets fans were able to enjoy a win without the drama. Pretty nice !
