• Izzy's 300th comes in extra inning Met win •

Mets 5 - Padres 4
R.A. Dickey had a good start tonight that was supported by good defense and offense by the Mets, but tough luck Dickey would not get the win. The Mets would have to take it to the 10th inning in San Diego to get the victory.
In the 2nd inning Lucas Duda crushed a solo HR deep into the right field seats at Petco Park. This was Duda's 5th home run since the All-Star break. Duda leads the Mets in 2nd half home runs which is great for Duda but really sad for the Mets who by mid-August do not have a player that has reached double digit home runs. Lower the left field fence Freddy!

The next power punch came from the unlikely source of Josh Thole who hit a 2 run home run to right field pushing the Mets to a 3-0 lead.

Dickey gave one run back in the 3rd but Thole singled in the top of the 4th to drive in Pridie and give the Mets a 4-1 lead.
Thole drilled starter Aaron Harang in the 6th with a liner up the middle to knock him out of the game. Thole is now 6-6 vs. Harang.
In the top of the 7th the Mets were victimized by the fat turd ump play. Duda hit and hard ground ball up the middle that was not within 40 yards of a Padre, but it nicked the pant cuff of the sloathish 2nd base umpire. David Wright scored on the hit and it should have been the Mets 5th run, but Wright was ordered back to second base. That non- 5th run would play large late in the game. The score remained 4-1 going to the bottom of the 7th.
Dickey unraveled in the 7th and the Padres got within one on a 2 run homer by Will Venable.
What a shock...The Nickel headed Bobby Parnell blew the lead in the bottom of the 8th and the Padres tied the game at 4. Ron Darling would defend Bobby in the post game but Mets Blob feels a blown lead is a blown lead and Bobby has been shaky at best - so screw Bobby.
The Mets took the lead in the top of the 10th when Jason Pridie scored on a Scott Hairston fielders choice to put the Mets up 5-4. Then Jason Isringhausen came in the bottom of the 10th and after getting into trouble reached the 300 save mark. It was not easy tonight but Isringhausen now joins John Franco and Billy Wagner as the only pitchers to reach the 300 save mark in a Met uniform and only the 23rd pitcher in MLB history. Jason chalked up his first MLB save as a Met in 1999. Congrats Jason!

Lucas Duda, Josh Thole, and Jason Pridie all had big nights at the plate to help the Mets snap a 5 game losing streak.
- SNY Douche off -

During a segment in the SNY's pre-game Kevin "Game Stopper" Burkhardt referred to Gary Apple as "G.A." causing Mets Blob to about lose his blobby mind. The guys name is GARY APPLE that's already jerked off enough for a guy doing sports in the Big Apple without calling him "G.A."! Kevin stick your pseudo clever quips up your "A.H."...I mean, asshole. In fairness compared to SNY's Kirk Gimenez, Gary Apple is Curt Gowdy and ties the shit out of a neck tie.
