Flushing Cyclones

The roller coaster named Oliver Perez lead the roller coaster named the New York Mets to a 8-3 win over the Reds on Sunday.

The Mets have been consistently inconsistent over the past week, showing flashes of the greatness we expect of this team and flashes of terrible play that we have grown to also expect of this team.

The “very good” Ollie showed up for the first few innings, throwing 5 shutout innings and scattering a hit and 3 walks to go with 8 Ks.

Then came the “bad” Ollie in the 6th who got wild giving up hits, a wild pitch, and 3 runs.

The up and down trend didn’t just apply to the starting pitcher, the Mets bats returned after taking Saturday night off.

Carlos Beltran was 2-for-5 with a HR, double, and 3 RBIs and seems to be “back” at the plate after having a good series against th Reds. Same goes for Carlos Delgado, who was 1-for-3 on the day. The two Carloses went a combined 10-for 21 in the series.

Ryan Church had a HR, going back-to-back with Beltran and he added a great running catch in the RF corner, crashing into the padding on the OF wall.

Jose Reyes was 3-for-5 and David Wright picked up a RBI and went 1-for-4.

Luis Castillo was 2-for-3 with a RBI triple but had to leave the game with a tight left quad. Surprise, surprise. I’m sure he won’t get injured anymore during the remaining 3+ seasons of his contract.
