The Mets lost their first meaningless game in a string of meaningless games today but it wasn’t all super meaningless. David Wright smacked his third homer of the Spring and Gee pitched four scoreless innings. In addition to Gee and Wright:
- Cuddyer didn’t homer, but he added his 4th double of the season
- Alvarez allowed a hit and struck out one in one inning of work
- Thorton allowed a run for the first time in a while, Torres allowed two runs in an inning
- Familia had a clean inning of work
- Captain Kirk went 0-3 with three strikeouts
Leather Rocket was sent to the minor league camp recently, so Alvarez’s outing becomes more important. The Mets are still looking for their LHP and Alvarez is starting to get his game together at the right time.
