For the first time since early July, the New York Mets have won a series by taking three out of four against the San Francisco Giants. The Mets clobbered the Giants 9-1 and were led by super-sub Ronny Cedeno who had 5 rbi in this afternoon’s 9-1 victory.
A lot of positives for the ball club this series, they went back to the mold they created in the first half by knocking in two out runs, receiving solid pitching, and most importantly the bullpen managed only one blown save in a series that the team would end up on the resilient end.
A lot of positives today as well, Jason Bay’s RBI total has reached double digits (10), and it was nice to see Cedeno show a little pop and knock in five runs. Chris Young bounced back to hurl 7 innings and only surrender one run.
Overall what this series does for this team it bring them to a 5-3 clip over the first two series of this west coast road trip and give the team enormous confidence going into the series against the San Diego Padres, a team that the Mets are better than.
Should the Mets go on to take the series against the Padres, the team would go to 7-4 on the road trip and leave a good taste in the mouth of the Amazins’ who will come home to the fourth place Miami Marlins and Wild Card contending Atlanta Braves.
Hopefully this series will take a snow ball effect that could allow the Mets to enter their names back into relevancy and finish the season above .500, for the first time since 2008.
Let’s just hope it snow(balls) in August to make September memorable.
