Mets win in 10 :Izzy notches 300th save

Of course the  Mets dont make it easy.  Up 4-1 early the Mets gave up the lead and of course your friend and mine the brainless Bobby Parnell blew the lead after  R A Dickey gave up 3 .  Thats ok though since Jason Isringhausen recorded his 300 save when the Mets went ahead again in the 10th by pitching a scoreless bottom of the 10th.

Josh Thole plated 3 with a rbi hit and a 2 run shot of of Harrang. Duda had 3 hits with a solo shot that was a moon shot.  Good ole boy Jason Bay went 0-4 and left 5 runners on base. Guess the hot streak is over. 

Mets have a chance to win a series in San Diego for the first time in a long time if they can win tonight.

Congrads to Izzy to recording his 300th save with the team that dubbed him part of Generation K.

Mets Box Score

Izzy comments after the game  It is special," said Isringhausen, who celebrated with teammates with champagne postgame. "It's the reason I came back was to get 300 -- and I got it. So now it's time to move on for myself and keep playing baseball and hopefully get some more saves before the end of the year."
