Big comeback win for Mets, Wright.

If there was a game to watch this summer you have to start with last night’s dramatic come from behind win in the bottom of the 9th .   With some incredible pitch selection and of course a 2 out by Mr clutch for the nite, David Wright, the Mets beat the Phillies last night 6-5.

The win kept R A Dickey win streak alive since he was off the hook for a loss. The Phillies seem to have his number and were able to tackle his knuckler .  He gave up the most hits he has given up this year .   Wright looked great at the plate each time he came up against Hamels.  He was able to foul off the tough pitches and clock the mistakes .  He hit a change up for a home run to give the mets a 4-3 lead at the time. Dickey was not able to keep the lead as the game seem to go back and forth.

The Mets lead off the 9th with a double off Papelbohn.   The Mets then seemed to run 3-2 counts from then on.  Tejada was able to lay off a breaking pitch after seeing some blazing fastballs.  Murph hit one off the leg of Papel that plated the tying run in the bottom of the 9th . Wright then fought off a inside fastball for a bloop hit into right for his Fourth rbi and first walk off hit in 4 years.  He is the only player in the majors to have walk off hits against Papel and Rivera of the Yanks. 

Big win for the Metsies whose lefties were having a lot of trouble against Hamels.
