Mets Hold On For a Series Win

Game 25: Mets 4 - Braves 3

Glass half empty: The Mets left some men on base and made a couple of bad errors, including one by Delgado in the ninth that turned it into a nail biter.

Glass half full: Livan Hernandez actually pitched into the seventh, David Wright had another couple of hits, and the Mets turned three double plays.

The Mets have a two-game winning streak for only the third time this young season. They have yet to string three wins together.

Quick notes:

Church looks lost at the plate. It's not just that he's not hitting -- he's not even taking many good at bats. I could see him losing playing time to Sheffield, frankly it's only his glove that's keeping him in the starting lineup right now.

The Mets were 3-13 with RISP. Braves pitcher Kenshin Kawakami should have been out of the game on the wrong side of a lopsided score, but instead actually pitched well enough to win it.

You could nitpick this game, as it certainly wasn't an artistic masterpiece for the Mets, but you have to like that they managed to pull out a pair of close games at Turner Field. The two losses the Mets hung on the Braves were reminiscent of many games the Mets have wound up on the losing side of over the years.

And, hey, it might only be two games, but it's the first series sweep by the Metropolitans in 2009.

Well we see the results for them messing with Church, he's a guy that has to play everyday to be productive. Team situational hitting is going to be angst of us all, what have they left on base already this season about 200+? Glad they were able to win it. Go Mets 2009!
