Jon Niese made his valiant return from the disabled list and pitched well enough to earn his 4th win of the season. Niese lasted 6 innings, allowing a total of 7 hits, 4 earned runs and a walk with 5 strikeouts. Niese was shaky in his return but the offense did a great job of backing him up with 11 hits and 9 runs.
Once again, Wilmer Flores impressed. He added to his offensive onslaught with 2 more hits which included the first homerun of his career. Flores has a total of 9 RBIs in only 6 career games.
Mets win 9-5 and take the road series against the D’Backs.
