The Happy "Act of God" Nightcap
The Mets topped the Cubs tonight in a rain shortened game at Wrigley Field. Dillon Gee got off to a very shaky start, giving up 4 runs in the first inning but settled down to go six innings for the win. The Mets hammered Cub starter Casey Coleman. Beltran led the way driving in two runs with a double. He would have driven in 3 runs on the hit, but Josh Thole took a header rounding third and had to scramble back to the bag.
Beltran gapped a triple later in the game. Jason Pride, Ruben Tejada and Jose Reyes joined Beltran in the 2 hit parade. Cubs reliever Justin Berg entered the game and walked three batters on 12 straight pitches out of the strike zone, forcing in 2 runs.
Mets Blob quoted Fred Wilpon about tonight's game saying, "Both teams are snake bitten and suck. God intervened with the rain because he had seen enough of these mediocre, over-paid boobs. Now I'm going to put on my PJs, fix myself a hot toddy, and watch Duke Snider highlights."
