Wagner Living Up to Reputation for Mets

Closer Has Been Lights Out Thus Far

Flushing NY- In a year where almost every team has lost confidence in their closers, Mets' closer Billy Wagner has regained the faith of Met fans.

Sure, the Mets' bullpen has been a mess in the middle innings, but as bad as its been from innings 6 through 8, its been lights out in the 9th thanks to Wagner.

The line on Wagner reads as follows: 9 games, 9 innings pitched, 0 runs, 9 Ks, 2 walks and 5 saves.

The loquacious lefty has always irritated Met fans by doing more talking about saving games than actually saving them.

This season has been a trying one for Met fans, so the resurgence of Wagner has been a Godsend.

Wagner preserved the Mets' 4-3 lead on Saturday giving the club a much needed lift. He got a chance at the save because the middle relief, which has been getting hammered as of late, finally was able to bridge the gap from starter to Wagner with a lead.

The Mets are now 12-11 on the season.
