Thunder pitchers limited the Mets to only one run in the fifth inning that tied the game briefly before the offense managed to score a crucial run in the bottom of the seventh to pull ahead for good and take a 2-0 series lead. The Mets have thrown their two best pitchers at the Thunder over the past two games while the Thunder have their best pitchers yet to go. They are one game away from taking the best of five series with a win when they travel to Binghamton tonight at 7:05 pm.
