I predicted a blow out game today, although I got the teams wrong, as the Mets dominated the Phillies beating them 7-1 in the 1st game of the series.
Cole Hamels got 8 outs, and let up 7 hits (2 to Chris Young in the 3rd inning alone), 2 walks, and 6 runs, and was booed heavily by unhappy Phillie fans. I had that line in mind for one of the pitchers in tonight's game, but I'm glad I was wrong.
Chris Young got Ryan Howard out 3 times, two on strike outs, and then a huge ground out to end the 5th inning with the bases loaded, which may have taken all the air and energy out of Citizens Bank Park.
The offensive star, besides CY, was D Wright, who had 4 hits, 2 RBIs, and a stolen base.
Tomorrow night is a 7:05 start, with Mike Pelfrey taking the ball opposing Joe Blanton.
