Wright Goes Deep, Figgy Gets Bombed as Mets/Marlins Finish 8-8

Today the Mets tied the Marlins 8-8 in 10 innings today, thanks to the hitting of David Wright and Alex Cora, and the pitching of Nelson Figueroa (box score).

Wright went deep in the third, and finished the day 2-3 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored, while Alex Cora went deep as well, while going 2-5 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.  Also adding to the Mets offensive power today were Pagan, Murphy, Francouer and Castillo, who all drove in runs as well.

As for on the hill, Nelson Figueroa might have lost his chance at the opening day roster, as slim as his chances were.  A guy like Figgy has everything going against him, and could not afford to do what he did today if he wanted to make the team.  Figgy went 2 and 2/3 innings giving up 7 runs on 8 hits.  On the brighter side, Jenrry Mejia threw 1 and 1/3 innings only giving up one run.  The rest of the Mets who pitched today Misch, Feliciano, Valdez and Nieve threw scoreless innings only allowing 5 hits combined over the final 6 innings.

Not a good day for Figgy.  It looks like the Mets are going to just have to hope he passes through waivers, one more time...
