Duda’s power surge lifts Mets to first victory

Officially named the Mets’ starting first baseman Friday despite his .000 average and skittish plate approach through three games, Duda launched two-run homers off Mike Leake in the fourth and sixth innings, giving the Mets an early lead and later extending it. The result was the fifth multi-homer game of Duda’s career.

Still, the scattered thousands who stayed until the end on a cold, rainy night at Citi Field could not be assured of victory until the final out. New York’s bullpen absorbed significant damage for the fourth straight game, this time when John Lannan served up Jay Bruce’s two-run homer with two outs in the seventh. That brought on Kyle Farnsworth, who combined with new closer Jose Valverde for the final seven outs.

Duda hit two homers with men on base last night. He hit two homers with men on base in 2013.

Last night's performance aside, I don't understand the decision to hand Duda the job, after not having made a decision all through spring training. And he should most definitely be platooned.

As much as I admire Murphy for working hard enough to become a passable 2B, he makes some terrible plays out there.

Mejia looked pretty good against a deep lineup. Someone in the bullpen needs to step up quickly though.
