The Happy Game One Daycap
RA Dickey took a no hitter into the 7th inning. Dickey was pitching a masterful game until (due to personal reasons) Mets Blob changed televisions in the top of 7th, and suddenly Shane Victorino broke up the no no. Sorry Met fans, that's on the Blob. The Phillies would go on to plate one run in 7th and take the lead 1-0.
In the bottom of 7th, September call up and AAA masher Val Pascucci cranked a pinch hit solo bomb into the left field seats to tie the game.
Thank you BIG RAGU for coming through!
Ruben Tejada singled and stole second base to put himself in scoring position in the bottom of the 8th. David Wright then threaded a double down the third baseline to score Tejada and give the Mets a 2-1 lead that Manny Acosta held in the 9th, and the Mets took the first game of the day/night double header from Philadelphia.
The Mets won a rare home game and handed Philly their 7th loss in row. The powerful Phillies are looking a bit meek as they roll their way into the postseason. Will Philadelphia be able to throw the switch and turn it on for the playoffs? Who fucking cares? This is Mets Blob.
