Mets win, reach .500

Posted: June 16, 2011 in Mets

Ok, so .500 may not seem to be such a great accomplishment. But for this ragtag group of Mets, it certainly is.
The Mets beat the Braves tonight 4-0 in a game twice interrupted by rain delays to even their record at 34-34 for the season. Dillon Gee had a bit of bad luck tonight, as he was well on his way to an 8-0 start. He fired four shutout innings before the rains came, causing a delay of an hour and 10 minutes.
The bullpen came through for a change, as D.J. Carrasco, Bobby Parnell and K-Rod combined for five innings of one-hit ball. Parnell fanned five in two innings and was credited with the win.
Angel Pagan had two hits, including a two-run homer. Jose Reyes went 1-4 with a double, run and an RBI groundout.
The Mets haven’t been over the .500 mark since they were 3-2 in the opening week of the season. Would certainly be nice to get there tomorrow by picking up a rare sweep at Turner Field, usually a house of horrors for the Mets since it opened. R.A. Dickey (3-7, 3.98 ERA) opposes Braves rookie Mike Minor (0-2, 4.50).
Let’s go Mets!
