THE BEAST CAME EAST
Mets Blob predicted that Tulo would make Citi Field look small, and he has done that and then some. Still on fire, Troy went 3 for 4 in game one of the double header with a walk. One of his hits was another bomb off Bobby "Beyond Over Rated" Parnell. A late fight with home runs by Reyes and a 2 run blast by Hairston in the bottom of the 9th got the Mets once again within one run. Back to back singles by Thole and Beltran knocked Street out of the game and brought a hot Reyes to the plate with one out. Reyes hit in to a fielder's choice, putting runners at 1st and 3rd. Reyes stole second base with Murphy at the plate. Murphy drew a walk to load the bases for David Wright. With a 3-2 count, Wright flew out to deep right field, and the Mets lose once again by one run. The Mets are not only on the verge of being swept in the double header, but of being swept in this 4 game series with the Rockies.
Aside from the late push in the 9th, the Mets were horrific in the outfield, sloppy on the on bases, and Dickey was once again wild.
• Troy Tulowitzki is 8 for 12, hitting .667 with 3HRs and 7 RBI against the Mets so far, with one more game to go. So much for Troy being a slow starter.
