Granderson And Bruce Lead The Way

Heading into the season, it was an either/or decision between Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson. Not getting what they wanted on the trade market, the Mets instead opted to keep both. With a Yoenis Cespedes DL stint and Michael Conforto getting nicked up, the Mets are sure glad it turned out that way. Today was another example why. 

Granderson would once again lead off the game by getting on base. This time it was a lead-off double against Marlins starter Jose Urena. He then came home to score on a two out Bruce RBI double. Bruce then scored on a T.J. Rivera RBI double giving the Mets a 2-0 first inning lead. 

Bruce wasn’t done doubling Granderson in. In the third, Granderson started another rally. This time he reached in what should have been ruled an infield single. It was a really tough error on JT Riddle

Cespedes followed with a one out infield single of his own before Bruce doubled in Granderson. Again, TJ followed a Bruce RBI with one of his own. This time it was an RBI single bringing home Cespedes. Bruce scored on a Jose Reyes sacrifice fly giving Seth Lugo a 5-0 lead. 

Lugo was cruising through the first three until Giancarlo Stanton led off the fourth with one of his monster home runs:

Lugo shook that off and got the Mets into the sixth inning with a 5-1 lead. The Marlins would then rally and make a game of it. 

He had none on and two outs after Dee Gordon was gunned down by Rene Rivera. That’s when Stanton got a rally started for the Marlins. 

He and Christian Yelich hit back-to-back singles bringing Martin Prado to the plate. He singled to left, and for a moment it appeared Cespedes gunned down Rivera. However, the non-sliding Stanton knocked the ball loose scoring the run and allowing Yelich to get to third. 

With Justin Bour at the plate, a perhaps shaken up Rivera tried to backhand a pitch in the dirt. As the ball scooted away, Yelich scored to bring the Marlins within 5-3. 

After getting Bour out, the book was closed on Lugo. His final line was six innings, six hits, three runs, two earned, one walk, and four strikeouts. 

Unlike most games, the Mets would get an insurance run. 

Matt Reynolds busted it out of the box, and he tripled to right off of Marlins reliever Nick WittgrenJarlin Garcia entered the game with Brandon Nimmo announced as a pinch hitter and Granderson behind him. 
Terry Collins opted to pinch hit Wilmer Flores for Nimmo. Flores couldn’t bring home Reynolds leaving it to Granderson. Granderson delivered with an RBI groundout giving the Mets a 6-3 lead. 
In the eighth, there were two double plays that kept the game tied. 

In the top half, in one motion, Riddle caught a Reyes line drive and beat Bruce back to second base. 

In the bottom half, Josh Edgin was in a precarious spot after a Gordon lead-off single. He struck out Stanton, and he got Yelich to ground into the inning ending 4-6-3 double play. 

After a scoreless ninth, Addison Reed recorded his 12th save giving the Mets the series win over the Marlins. Believe it or not, after a disastrous start to the road trip in Los Angeles, the Mets had a .500 road trip. 

Game Notes: Lucas Duda sat a second straight game with the flu. He made once pinch hitting appearance striking out.

  1. nothing is going to change says:

    Their team morale and cohesion has not faltered. Is it partly the vets or the vets they have? TC and his staff? Their mental performance coach who we only heard about opening day?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Mixture of the players and the clubhouse atmosphere Collins fosters

  2. nothing is going to change says:

    If Grandy is not coming back, if he wants to finish up his career in Chicago, do the Mets make it happen?

    No matter what Jeff, please do not piss Grandy off, please please please please.

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Grandy is a classy guy. I’d love to see him finish his career as a Met

  3. Gothamist says:

    Yankees interested in Duda, what about RF?

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=fowler000dus

    18th rounder
    From Georgia
    Drafted out of HS
    There was involved scouting down south in his drafting (unless remotely related to Art Flower)

    His production at AA AAA looks very good and the speed, power and team stats!

    Maybe the Yankees scouting staff zeros in specifics for their mold and where the NYG taeget team capitans and high character- not to say the Yankees or Mets do not the Yankees have been steady and through in their system- how many above Average position players in this decade?

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Fowler just blew up his knee last night

  4. Gothamist says:

    How I found it, before his first plate appearance. Bizzare if you ask me.

    Yankee picks since 2011?
    Amateur FA signees since 2011?
    The organizational chart of how Mets discover and draft?
    Sandy is taking too much credit?

    Thanks

    1. metsdaddy says:

      Sandy has always taken too much credit. He wrote a book about how he revived the Mets before the 2015 season.

      That team was predominantly Omar’s players, or players acquired using Omar’s players
