Den Dekker and the Mets deck Deck (goose?)
I didn’t get to see Zack Wheeler pitch last night, but this game certainly made up for it. Matt den Dekker set the tone with a leadoff single that would start him on his first of three trips around the diamond in the B-Mets 11-4 victory that had the Mets trying to outdo the fireworks that followed the game.
Fisher Cats starter Deck McGuire gave up 5 runs and was lifted with one out in the first inning. B-Mets starter Gonzalez Germen looked like he wouldn’t fare much better in the bottom of the inning, but he escaped a bases loaded jam after giving up two runs.
After two uneventful innings, the B-Mets padded their lead with a trio of home runs: den Dekker in the 4th, Josh Rodriguez in the 6th, and Eric Campbell in the 8th. Edgar Ramirez relieved Germen and pitched the last two innings, ending the game with a swinging strikeout.
More to come…
