Big win for the Mets: Thole heading to DL.

As the Rangers pulled one out in Overtime last night the Mets pulled one out against aguy they have a little history with. 

The Mets montra after last nights win might be never give up, never surrender.  Of course omage to a good cheese of a movie Galaxy Quest .

The Mets were able to squeak out 2 runs off of Halladay ala a 2 out hit from David Wright who hit the ball between the bag and Polanco at 3rd to tie the game at 2.  The Mets then in 9th were able to peck away at Mr Pappelbum and then for his first hit Jordan Valdespin thought he would be prime time by hitting a 3 run pinch hit homer run to give the Mets the lead 5-2.  Talk about a swelled head this kid going to have.

In the bottom of the 9th Frank Francisco and David had a great play. Francisco was quick off the mound   as Rollins tried to do a drag bunt and with a nice shovel pass to Davis was able to keep Rollins off the bases.

The Mets played some solid ball last night.  Even Thole took a shot from Wiggington which rang his bell but he hung on to the ball to save a run.  Thole was taken out and was dizzy afterwards so he might be DL bound.
