Ignore the fact the Mets are slightly injury plagued and need some help in the pitching department for one night.
Allow yourself to give them an “atta boy” for a change. It is enjoyable to see them play with some sticktoitiveness and fight for a win after yesterday’s crushing blow.
A few feel good highlights for me tonight,
- David Wright’s three RBI night including a two run bomb and a big RBI single in the ninth inning. Amazing what the guy can do when his back isn’t broken.
- Lucas Duda is quietly becoming quite a run producer. His two run, walk off single, gives him 10 RBIs in his last 11 games. That’s almost one a game for you math majors out there
- Jason Bay goes deep again. Nothing really witty to say here, I just liked his home run.
- Last but not least, I really got a kick out of Mike Baxter’s family’s reaction to his eighth inning, pinch hit, double. Sweet.
Of course, a Midwestropolitan.com “Air Claw” goes out to each one of them. While we’re at it, give yourself one too.
That my friends, is all. Have a pleasant evening.
