Yes the Mets lost last night 7-3 due to Mr Gee having no control and walking the ball park. For the first time Gee was handed a loss along with being charged with 4 runs due to 6 walks in 4 innings . Gee had no control from the first batter when he walked the first 2 he faced. The Mets were out of it early but then it happened.
Jason Bay hit a mistake pitch fair for once. He didn't foul the ball off. He hit a hanging breaking ball in the air. Yes I saw it with my own eyes. Bay hit a ball in the air and it hit the 2nd deck facing in left field!!!! The ball landed in the first row in the outfield section for a home run. Yes Bay hit a home run!!! At that point he already had a single and walk. He wasn't done he then hit the ball real far in the air again! Bay knock Coco Crisp against the wall in Centerfield for a rbi triple. Check out Bay's homer and triple here. Bay wound up a double short of cycle and had his first extra base hit since mid May. Of course this is just 1 game but hey we will take it and I am sure Bay might have even cracked a smile after that. Bay's comments taken from Anthony DiComo
"It felt great," said Bay, who credits his improvement to using his legs more in his swing. "Working every day, as much as what you tell people that's what you're doing, it's nice to get results. It's just been a battle."
The Mets and there Bay masher will meet the swinging A's again tonight who last night had there first victory against the Mets in NY since the World Series in '73
