The Happy .500 Nightcap
Mets 4 - Braves 0
Between 2 rain delays and being hopped up on cold medicine, Mets Blob is a little fuzzy about tonight's game.
Let's see what the Blob can recall:
• The Mets sign prospect, Darryl Strawberry, and are excited about Danny Heep this year.
• Reyes lead off with a Double, advanced to third, and scored on a ground ball out by Tejada.
• Dillon Gee struck out 5 and only gave up one hit in four innings.
• Angel Pagan hit a 2 run homer after a Murphy single.
• The Mets close the Polo Grounds and move to the new state of the art Shea Stadium.
• Banner day is a big hit at Shea.
• Jerry Koosman got the opening day start and had to face Willie Mays.
• Game back on
• Mets get the sacks full but only pick up 1 more run.
• The Mets can't bunt for shit. This needs to change.
• Angel Pagan pulls another Met base running boner.
• Mets pen dominates the Braves pen to hold on to get the win.
• Reyes once again starts the show.
• Pagan & Bay both go 2-4. YES BAY went 2-4!
• Gee, D.J., Parnell, & K-Rod combine for a 2 hit shutout.
• Parnell struck out 5 in 2 innings and hit 99 on the gun many times.
• Terry does not mess around and has K-Rod close up 4. Good call Terry.
• The Mets reach the .500 mark, plus take the series from the Braves at Turner field.
Dickey goes for the sweep @ 7:10 tonight
Goooood night all!
