What a game to miss! Saturday afternoon’s Mets-Rangers game was a Fox game and was not aired in my market, so I couldn’t see the Mets score a season-high 14 runs to beat the Rangers 14-5. But the box score looks entertaining.
Lucas Duda (left) was 4-5 with three doubles and drove in four runs. Carlos Beltran was 3-5 with three RBIs. Ruden Tejada, Josh Thole, Willie Harris and Jose Reyes (of course) had two hits each.
Jon Niese was the winner, but he had to be removed from the game in the middle of the sixth inning with what announced as a rapid heartbeat. Maybe he just got excited watching the Mets score so many runs. But likely it was due to the oppressive heat in Arlington. Let’s hope it’s nothing more serious than that.
Speaking of not-serious injuries, Jason Bay sat out the game with a stiff neck. After going 3-4 in Friday’s game, his neck must have gotten a workout while looking at his rare base hits!
The Mets go for the series win Sunday afternoon in what promises to be another sweltering day. Dillon Gee tries for his eighth win.
