Let's Go Mets! APRIL 21 - HOME GAME #8 vs Atlanta Braves (8-4)

Jon Niese (1-0) faces the Braves Trevor Cahill (0-1) as the Mets try to keep their eight game winning streak alive. Catcher Kevin Plawecki makes his first MLB start, replacing injured Travis d'Arnaud.


Lets Go Mets! Curtis Granderson snapped a slump with three hits and a 4 RBI evening. In his debut Kevin Plawecki singled twice and scored twice. The red hot Mets won their 9th straight game including all 8 at home. Jon Niese allowed only 4 hits along with four walks and five strikeouts. Since Sept. 19, 2013, Niese held opponents to three earned runs or less in 33 of his past 36 starts. Another small crowd, way less than the 21,033 listed in the box score but enthusiastic in rooting for the Mets.

Before the game I was able to speak briefly and shake the hand of Mets third base coach Tim Tuffel. We met at the Met's Fantasy Camp in January. He said the Mets need to have a winning record each month and they are in the playoffs. Tim tosses bubble gum to the fans while walking out to the third base coach's box.
