David Wright was hit in the head by a pitch, and Dillon Gee struggled in his final start of the year as the Mets dropped the game to the Brewers 4-2.
The Bad Stuff:
- With two outs and a run home in the bottom of the 3rd, David Wright took a Johnny Hellweg change up right to the head and left the game immediately. Fortunately, he passed his concussion tests and says he feels fine.
- Dillon Gee couldn't finish the year strong, allowing four runs on seven hits in six innings, walking two and striking out two on 89 pitches. He finishes the season one inning short of 200.
- New York was hitless in 14 at-bats with RISP and stranded 11 men on base.
- Josh Satin hit his third home run of the season in the bottom of the 9th.
- Eric Young stole two more bases, giving him 44 on the season (36 with the Mets) to tie him with Milwaukee's Jean Segura for the National League lead.
- Justin Turner went 2-3 with a double filling in for Wright.
Wright passed his concussion test. Let's just try to move on.
It's a shame Dillon Gee didn't get to the "badge of honor" of 200 innings, but to come back from a career-threatening blood clot just a year before to pitch the complete season is pretty impressive. 199 will be a number he can be proud of for the rest of his career.
