The Mets put the nail in the Braves coffin today at Citi Field to sweep the first series of the season. It’s early, so I’m not getting too excited. I know that this roster doesn’t stack up, on paper, to the other rosters in the division. But I like that they’ve got some fight in them.
The Mets finished off the last game of the series with a 7-5 win highlighted by Jon Niese taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He ended up coming out in the seventh inning before recording an out after throwing 103 pitches.
Ruben Tejada, who usually looks like an automatic out to me, led the Mets offense going 4 for 5 with 2 RBI’s and 2 Runs. Hopefully, it’s not a fluke and he’ll be able to contribute offensively with some consistency.
Here’s some video of the post-game from SNY.
