Mets Go Deep, Beat Twins 6-0 To Take the Series

David Wright, Jeff Francoeur and Ike Davis powered the Mets to a 6-0 victory behind some great pitching from Niese and the bullpen (wrap/box score). 

Today was a total team effort, great pitching and some good hitting as well.  Francoeur, Feliciano and Wright all had three hits for the Mets.  Ike Davis also brought it today, going 2-4 with the homer and 2 runs scored. 

On the hill, Niese was great going 6 innings and giving up only 4 hits and 3 walks.  The bullpen also got the job done tossing 3 scoreless innings after Niese left the game. 

Today was a great day on the field for the Mets, but not a great day off it.  Both Jenrry Mejia and Angel Pagan are injured, as Mejia went down today with shoulder stiffness, as relayed here.  Meanwhile, Angel Pagan continues to be out with some muscle issues on his side.  Originally expected to be back tomorrow, Metsblog is reporting it'll probably be another few days.

Tomorrow the Mets head to Puerto Rico to take on the Marlins.  Game one features R.A. Dickey against Ricky Nolasco at 7:10.  The team just needs to keep winning series, and what a better way to start than taking the first of three tomorrow night...

Let's Go Mets.
