Lucas Duda and the importance of 30 home runs

Plenty of good moments for a 79-win team

What were the moments and stats that will be best remembered from the 2014 season for the Mets? Here’s one man’s list. April 5- Ike Davis hits a pinch-hit walk-off grand slam as the Mets rally to beat the Reds, 6-3 for their second win of the season. Stat to Remember: The Mets traded Davis to the Pirates 13 days later and this turned out to be one of the most important moves of the season as Lucas Duda became the everyday first baseman.

Duda HR unlikely in more ways than one

Given that Lucas Duda was 19-for-110 (a .173 batting average) against left-handed pitching entering his ninth-inning at-bat against Tony Sipp and that lefties were 11-for-87 (.126 batting average) against Sipp this season, the end result being a walk-off two-run home run was a rather unlikely one.

Duda hits a walk-off ... against a lefty

NEW YORK -- Lucas Duda didn't seem to remember the last time he'd hit a walk-off home run. You've got to believe he remembers any home runs he has hit against left-handed pitchers. Or maybe even any hits he has had against lefties. Duda has made amazing progress in this 2014 season. When it began, the Mets still couldn't decide whether they wanted Duda or Ike Davis as their first baseman (and they wouldn't start either one of them against a left-hander).
