The Mets are closing in on the start of the 2015 season as they took the Harvey Day show on the road to the Cardinals. Harvey did well allowing one run over 4.1 innings throwing about 80 pitches, 58 of them for strikes, and striking out 5. Let’s take a peak at the rest of the Mets squad:
- Torres had an ok outing allowing 2.1 innings and one earned run
- Gilmartin was given a classic LOOGY outing and nailed it facing one batter and striking him out
- Mejia didn’t have the greatest outing allowing a three run homer in 0.2 innings of working
- Granderson continued his hot streak getting two hits in 3 ABs
- Cuddy had another double as he continued his impressive spring (he also had a homer that was robbed)
- Campbell added two hits in four AB’s as he continues to try to break onto the 25 man
For the most part yesterday the offense was off, but they had a strong end of the game to make it close.
Gilmartin has had an impressive last two weeks as he moved himself from not having a shot at all of making the roster to looking like one of the Mets better options (which isn’t too tough, we don’t have many options for lefties out of the pen).
