This afternoon the Mets took down the Astros in the rubber game of a 3 game series at Minute Maid Park in Houston, TX by the score of 7-4. Chris Capuano (3-4) got the 'W' in 5 innings of work. He gave up 6 hits and 2 ER while walking 3.
- Justin Turner had 2 huge hits, including a 3-Run homer and a 2-Run double
- Jason Pridie also had an RBI hit, along with a steal of home (double steal, Reyes from first)
- K-Rod got his 12th save of the year, pitching another perfect inning
- Jose Reyes had 2 stolen bases, both in the same inning
Although Jason Bay continues to struggle at the plate, he made an incredible catch that saved atleast 1 run.
Tomorrow the Mets will start a 2 game series against the 2nd place Marlins. It will be a rematch from opening day. Mike Pelfrey will try to continue his recent success by taking down one of the leagues most premiere pitchers, Josh Johnson at 7:10 pm at Citi Field.
