Reds 7, Mets 4: Three Up, Three Down
Today, on “As the Ike Turns”…
1. 2B Daniel Murphy: Three hits, two runs, two RBI…a nice little game for the new leadoff man.
2. OF Rick Ankiel: Three extra-base hits, including the game-tying RBI triple.
3. RHP Brandon Lyon: A fine relief effort for Lyon, who struck out a pair in his 1-2-3 inning.
1. 1B Ike Davis: Is Ike’s offense spilling into his defense? More and more, that seems to be the case.
2. RHP Bobby Parnell: The game-winning rally was not necessarily his fault, but Shin-Soo Choo’s leadoff double certainly did not help.
3. 3B David Wright: A fat 0-for-4 in the middle of the lineup was not what this struggling offense needed.
