It is impossible to imagine the joy Nelson Figueroa is feeling right now and was feeling last night. I mean, what would you feel like if you got your first Major League win in 5 years AND it came for your favorite team growing up? We have all probably heard his story. And if not HERE it is. If you want experience I say he is your guy.
Now about the game:
Figgy pitched 6 very good innings while giving up 2 runs and striking out 6. Again, living the dream. Joe Smith, Aaron Heilman, and Billy Wagner pitched after him and didn't allow any runs. (Thank goodness). The hitting did what they needed to although they left 6 men on base. Is it just me or was this a game of sixes? Jose Reyes left early with a tight hammy. Jeez, what is up with the Mets' hamstrings? So basically, the Mets did the minimum they needed to do at the plate while the pitching, especially Heilman, stepped up to do their job and possibly redeem themself from any previous issues.
Now I think I should probably end this post before I go completely insane from the Jonas Brothers playing in the background.
Let's Go Mets!
