Z-Cap: Mets Take First Series at PetCo…Ever, Do I Care?

While I’m not trying to be a jerk about this, tonight the Mets secured their first ever series win at San Diego’s new park 7-3 (box score) and truthfully, I wasn’t impressed.  I’m not a fair-weather fan, nor am I a perpetual downer on this team, but while I watched them take a series from a bad team I remain unimpressed.  Maybe it was the nature of the wins, or the game times that sucked the life out of me, but I just did not enjoy watching this series. Regardless, ending this trip 2-4 considering the start wasn’t so bad…

On the hill tonight, Dillon Gee brought it.  Gee went 6 and 2/3 innings giving up only one run on 5 hits on his way to his 11th victory on the season and proving to me, and I think  most Mets fans, that he belongs in the rotation next season no matter what.  Oh yeah, and Gee made a great play fielding a ground ball up the middle behind his back.  Definitely Sportscenter top ten worthy…

On a less than awesome note, and really verifying what a lot of people think, Ryota Igarashi was horrible again tonight.  Iggy is really going a long way in showing that he doesn’t belong on a major league roster giving up another two runs tonight in an inning of work, and taking some of the positive out of tonight’s win and the series win as well.  Because the truth is, the last thing I saw tonight was Iggy giving up runs…That’s not something to get excited about…

Meanwhile, on the offensive side of the ball the Mets 1-2-3 hitters were awesome.  Angel Pagan, Willie Harris and David Wright were responsible for driving in all 7 of the Mets runs tonight, along with scoring 3 of the teams 7 runs tonight.  All three of Wright’s RBI came on a three-run bomb in the third inning.  Wright also made a great heads up play in the field fooling Cameron Maybin into over-running third base so he could tag him out.  It was a great heads up play by Wright, and in my opinion the best moment of the night.

The Mets return home Friday to take on the NL Central leading Brewers.  Now winning THAT series would impress me…
