After dropping their potential 12-game winning streak to the New York Yankees yesterday, the New York Mets found a way to win once again. The Mets bounced back from their loss and defeated the Yanks in game two of the Subway Series. It’s no surprise for most fans because Matt Harvey was on the mound this time.
Harvey pitched in a day game for the first time in 2015, and it was one for the ages. He struck out Alex Rodriguez and held the Yankees’ hot offense to a measly two runs. He put out that fire burning in the Bronx right away. Of course Harvey didn’t do it by himself, the Mets’ offense rallied around him.
Lucas Duda opened the scoring in the first inning by homering to right field. Juan Lagares, Wilmer Flores, and Kevin Plawecki all contributed following Duda’s home run. The Mets offense got right back into their groove, breezing by C.C. Sabathia’s poor pitching, managing to hit three homers off the lefty.
Plawecki clearly showed he’s major league ready, earning his first major league home run. He has been playing well from the first day he got called up to the majors and will hopefully stick around.
After the Yankees stepped in and broke the Mets’ winning steak, I’m sure many assumed the Mets would fall back into a decline due to injuries. That’s the case at all, as they put on an Amazin’ show today and proved that their winning spirit is here to stay. Things are starting to look pretty good in Queens.
