Jon Niese also had a nice start. He went 5.2 IP giving up only 1 unearned run. The Cubs were hitting him but he kept the damage to a minimum. It was a very good recovery from his last bad start in Colorado.
The hero of the night was Angel Pagan, who hit a a long 2-run homer to left-center to put the Mets up for good in the bottom of the seventh.
On a positive note, Jason Bay went 2 for 3 tonight. Hopefully, that will get him out of his slump.

"it wasn't lost on us that the Mets won tonight" – great line! A couple of Ike Davis' is just what this team needs. When Eisenhower was runnig for President, his supporters won buttons that said "I Like Ike!" I am sure we hear a lot more from him as the season progresses. What a great start!
I like Ike already too!
