Ishii as 1, 2, 3…

It really was not easy for the Mets to win these past 3 games. They could have easily stumbled and be 0-8. Instead fans have been treated to a multi-faceted team, anchored by starting pitching, solid defense and speed.

The wins have a few things in common, mainly great starting pitching, from the Mets and their opponents.

Kaz Ishii joined the team late in spring training after Steve Trachsel's season-ending injury. The knock on Ishii has been his high walk-to-strikeout ratio. Though he walked 3 batters yesterday, Ishii mixed his pitches well and only allowed 2 hits in 7 shutout innings.
