Another great game!!!
Well Met fans, yall can hardly complain about Glavine tonight. He pitched great, making exactly one mistake, which Jason Lane hit near to the Conoco sign – 1 ER and that was the ballgame. Unfortunately for Glavine, Andy Pettitte didn’t make ANY mistakes (that the Met hitters did anything about, anyway…)
Glavine went 7 innings, gave up 5 H, 1 HR, 1 ER, no walks and 3 Ks. A lot of GB outs and a lot of lazy flies to left. He pitched efficiently, needing 86 pitches for 7 innings. He was pulled for a pinch hitter, but that didn’t do him no good. Braden Looper gave up a run, but that didn’t make no nevermind because Andy wasn’t givin it up.
Andy pitched 8 innings, 3 hits, 2 walks and 6 Ks on 103 pitches. Here and I thought Phil would leave him in for a CG SO, but BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDD came in and got the save with a groundout and 2 Ks. Good. I’d rather rest Andy’s arm cuz we gonna need it – got 2 (and hopefully more) months to go
I do NOT understand the Mets lineup. WHY is David Wright, their best hitter by a LONG shot, still hitting 5th? He should be hitting third. And the Jackal is hitting 4th – dude is a born #2 guy. Oh well. And they playing Jose Offerman at first??? WTF? Even Minky is bettern that. They looked a LOT better back in April – I remember this guy Victor Diaz – I’m glad he down in AAA – I’d rather see Chris Woodward.
We had a great crowd again. Are the fans showing up cuz this team is winning or cuz we wanna boo the Jackal?
Last game of the series tomorrow. Broom time.
