Here it is, the seventh inning and Alay Soler is still on the mound. Who would have thought?
Sure, it’s only one great start in three, but if this isn’t a fluke, this could be huge for the Mets.
Their bullpen has been overworked and the back end of the rotation has been a mess since Brian Bannister went down.
Soler’s pitch count was 89 after six, so this figures to be his last inning. Still, this is more than anybody had a right to expect.
