The Mets took the rubber game of the series against the Astros today in Houston behind a 5 RBI day from Justin Turner. It didn’t look good from the start as the Mets were no hit for the first four innings by Aneury Rodriguez. He looked fantastic through four but lost his you know what in the fifth inning when the Mets scored 4. Turner had a 2-run double and Jason Pridie scored on a double steal of home.
Turner hit a 3-run homer in the sixth inning to make it 7-2 at the time. The Mets only had 5 hits and 6 walks in the game.
Chris Capuano had another decent start going 5 innings and allowing only 2 runs. It took him 94 pitches to get through five, so it wasn’t exactly efficient. But it got the job done.
The Mets finish the road trip at 4-2 taking both series’ from Houston and Colorado. They’ll face the Marlins and Nationals at home this week.
