Another Happy Recap!

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.

Game MVP:
Chris Young had 3 hits offensively, and threw 5 solid innings, including 7 strikeouts, for a final line of 5 1/3 innings, 1 earned run, 5 hits and 4 walks. He finished throwing 103 pitches, and a lot of people didn't understand why he went out for the 6th inning, myself included. But D.J. Carrasco threw 1 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, followed by Byrdak and Parnell.

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.
