"It's seven minutes to midnight, and THE GOOSE-EGG SWEEP IS COMPLETE!" -Gary Cohen. Well said...
If anyone would've said the Mets win 5 of 6 versus the Yankees and Phillies, I would've said they are out of their mind. Well, I was wrong, and boy am I happy I was wrong. The Mets are 2 games over .500 and are only 2 games out of 1st place.
Pelfrey walked too many guys (five), but benefited from a few double plays (three) and threw 7 shutout innings (105 pitches). Reyes had 3 hits and a crucial 2-run double in the 7th inning to break the game open. Feliciano threw a scoreless 8th, and then K-Rod threw a scoreless 9th to complete a 27-INNING, 3-GAME SHUTOUT/SWEEP.
Mets travel to Milwaukee and Johan faces their ace Y Gallardo tomorrow night, 8:10 PM.
