Mets make it to .500 despite 2 rain delays

Rain doesnt bother the  Mets. The first delay was at the beginning of the game so Dillion Gee was not affected. They made it though 4 innings before the next one and Gee was done. The Mets had a lead after 4 but the rain and strong winds pushed the umps to cover the field. Collins chatted with the umps but to no avail.

Gee had said afterwards that he felt great but TC was not having him return so it was up to the bullpen. They didnt let the Mets down as DJ Carrasco and Bobby Parnell each pitched 2 innings and gave up a total of 1 hit . Parnell struck out 5 and Carrasco 1.  Carrasco had said that his stint at Buffalo made him work on his mechanics and lengthen his stride to help give movement and some velocity. Mets pitchers wound up shuting out the Bravos 4-0 on 2 hits. It was there 2nd shutout of the road trip.

The Mets are now at .500 for the first time since May 20th. They are 2 games over .500 on the road with 1 to play before heading home against the Angles on Friday. 

The Mets have the best ERA in the majors over the last couple of weeks. Not bad when there still lacking Johan.
