I don't have much for today's rubber game between the Mets and Pirates but mostly because it shouldn't have been a rubber game. It should have been a sweep and I can't get excited for a series the Mets SHOULD have won anyway.
But Niese looked good, pitching into the 8th inning while only giving up 1 run. Oh, and Wright "slumped" to .399... so there's that.
Game 44: Mets 3, Pirates 1
Mets 2012 record: 24-20
