It took four games and a pair of Lucas Duda (who) 2 run homers to get the Mets their first win of 2014. Whew, now the fan base can collectively exhale. There will be no 0-162 season. LOL ..following a 4-3 win over the Reds at a chilly Citi Field in front of an announced crowd of 35,845 (It looked a bit less than that on TV)
Meanwhile the Cardinals offense continued to struggle mightily with runners in scoring position (an area in which they excelled last season) and endured a 12-2 drubbing at the hands of the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
