Mets 3 - A's 2
13 Innings of Fun
The Mets topped the A’s tonight when Justin Turner Overdrive got hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 13th. Mets Blob thought Dickey was great tonight and the game seemed in hand in the bottom of the 8th when Jose Reyes clubbed a one out triple off the wall in right center and was singled home by Turner. Unfortunately, K-Rod was not informed of the plan.
Rodriguez had the A’s down to their last strike but gave up a 2 out game tying single in the top of the 9th. Following K-Rods meltdown, the game was pretty much hitter free as each team emptied their bullpen to overmatch the opposing lineup. To Mets Blob, the Mets and A’s looked like Little Leaguers playing on the big field for the first time. Suddenly the 200 ft. fence is 350 ft. and I am still 12 and can’t imagine hitting the ball that far. Until Turner leaned into the pitch in the 13th, this game looked like it would go 26 innings. Thanks J.T. Good Job.
BaywatchJason Bay was back in all out suck mode going 0 for 5 with three strikeouts. Too many people were getting excited when the Comatose Canadian had a few hits last night. Slow down Mets Fans, this guy needs more than one good game before we say he resembles a Major League hitter.
