The Mets (71-84) shutout the Pirates (76-79)by the score of 6-0 tonight at Citi Field.
The Least You Should Know:
Jeremy Hefner started for the Mets and was splendid, allowing three hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings.
Jeurys Familia delivered two scoreless innings of relief.
David Wright collected two hits to give him 1420 as a Met, the most in franchise history.
Ruben Tejada had four hits and two RBI.
The Mets got ten hits from numbers 1-4 in the order.
The Mets went 6-for-8 with runners in scoring position on the night.
Tejada has some work to do to get back to .300, but he helped himself with four singles tonight. Outside of a slump recently – which Terry Collins attributed to fatigue – has been steady all year long. I was worried about who he was and what he might be as a player coming into the season, but he proved me and a lot of other people wrong.
