Game 9: Mets vs Nationals

The Mets should be able to score some runs off of Jason Marquis, but will Chris Young be able to last more than 5 innings, or will he tax the bullpen once again?

Here is the Mets line-up, with Beltran once again getting the rubber game of the series off.

Reyes SS
Harris LF
Wright 3B
Davis 1B
Pagan CF
Duda RF
Emaus 2B (I would've put Murphy in to get another lefty in the line-up)
Thole C
Young P

Young hasn't faced the Nationals since 2008, so his career data means nothing (4 starts, 2-1, 2.4 ERA).
He hides the ball well from the hitter, which helps him when he can't throw > 85 mph

My Prediction: Mets score a bunch of runs off of Marquis, but Young can't provide the Mets enough innings and the Nationals score 5 runs. But the Mets bats prevail, winning 7-5.

  1. Did I see the Mets strike out 17 times today? Just like the Bobcats, Mets can't win a series at home. ugh...
