Wheeler was pretty darn good for a second straight game, and pushed his push count through 120 pitches! David Wright and Lucas Duda both homered to make this game more awesome. Captain Kirk also had a good day with a Triple and an assist. Familia and Edgin provided plus relief. We are now 7 games out of first and the wild card.
This is a big series for the Mets, who have just come off 2 great series, winning every game besides Colon’s 2 starts. Dice-K had his best start of the season versus Atlanta, and will look to get another quality start on Saturday. The final game of the season will be on Sunday when deGrom takes the mound, who now has 2 wins and 10 quality starts.
