Capuano Shines Before The Storm; Mets Beat Braves, Hudson 6-0

  • Chris Capuano was flat out spectacular tonight. He pitched a complete game shutout, allowing only two hits, no walks, and a career high 13 strike outs. He was good enough to get a pie in the face after the game from Willie Harris.

  • Some of the Mets young hitters continue to hit. Lucas Duda had three hits, two runs scored and two RBIs. His two run double came off Jonny Venters, which were the first two runs he allowed in two months, spanning 24 appearances and 23 innings.

  • Ruben Tejada had three more hits, bringing his average on the season up to .283. With the skill he brings on the defensive side of the ball, he is really developing into an asset for the Mets going forward.

  • Finally, the Mets were able to win the first game of a homestand. They started the year 0-10 in those situations.
The Mets and Braves will finish out this series with a double header September 8th, due to the inclement weather stemming from Hurricane Irene. The next game is scheduled for Monday, at Citi Field, with a double header against the Marlins, starting at 4:10.

Stay safe this weekend and take care of your loved ones.
