METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 14, 2009 GAME:ABK

Love the aggressive base running by the Mets in this game. Good to see they are taking advantage of the speed that they have. Nice game by Wright, 3 hits and 4 stolen bases. Big hit by Castro to give K-Rod a 3-run cushion, although it seems as if all he needs is one run and he closes the door. Maine pitched a great game once again, unfortunately the bullpen could not hold it. Parnell gave up the 2 runs in the 8th, but I don't think he pitched all that badly. Two of the hits were infield hits, just some bad luck for him. Honestly thought the Mets would not have much energy for this game considering the cross country flight yesterday, but they came out with the energy that they need to exhibit all year long. And by the way, the win allows them to add a full game lead on the Phillies and Marlins and a 1/2 game lead on the Braves.

Mets steal 7 bases, a franchise record. Wright becomes first Met to steal four bases since Roger Cedeņo accomplished the feat exactly 10 years earlier, on May 14, 1999.
