Another post from my Guest Blogger Daryl, who can hardly contain his joy.
On Opening Weekend the METS swept the Scrimey Braves. This was the first time in 27 years, and the third time in the history of the METS, that they won all 3 games in their first season series.
In Sunday’s game pitcher Jonathon Niese held the Scrimey Braves hitless through 6 innings. After a walk in the 7th a clean single by Freddie Freeman broke the string. Niese pitched a total of 6 innings, giving up 3 runs on 2 hits. He walked 4 batters and struckout 7, picking up his first win of 2012.
Frank Francisco closed and saved all three games, putting him at 3 for 3.
