John Maine won six games for the Mets last year. Tonight he won his fifth game. And, his ERA can’t get much lower.
Yeah, it’s been six starts and he’s got 29 to go, but he’s showing no signs this is a fluke. Pitching always concerns me, but Maine doesn’t even register on the worry meter for me any more. The best thing is that we wasn’t all that sharp but still got outs. That’s very impressive.
A lot to like about tonight. For me it was Maine and getting run production from elsewhere besides the big bats.
