What Better Way To End The Season Than With a Bunt

Miguel Batista threw a gem, and Jose Reyes may have bunted his way to a batting title, as the Mets won their season finale, 3-0.

  • Miguel Batista was brilliant this afternoon, throwing a complete game shut out. He allowed just two hits, a single to Edgar Renteria in the first inning, and a double to Chris Heisey in the second inning.
  • Jose Reyes. Imagine you're playing your very last game as a New York Met. What would you do? Try for a home run, or maybe leg out a triple? Reyes decided to...bunt. In the first inning Reyes laid down a bunt single to finish the 2011 season going 1-1 and batting .337. Reyes then pulled himself out of the game. Some fans were up in arms over the fact that he left the game, but to be honest, I couldn't get over the fact that someone on this team was finally able to successfully bunt.
  • Nick Evans got the Mets on the board in the fourth inning with an RBI single to center field.
  • Mike Baxter hit his first Major League home run in the sixth inning.

Next Up: With this win, the Mets end their 2011 season going 77-85. See everyone in 2012.
