Game 7 Review- Mets 11 Phillies 5

Maine didn’t have good control at all. He only went 4 2/3 innings and was over 100 pitches. Burgos came in to relieve him and threw gas on the fire. He gave up a three run homer to Ryan Howard. Burgos’ ERA is now a whopping  8.10.

The Mets blew the game open in the eighth off Geoff Geary and Jon Leiber. David Wright had the only extra base hit of the game for the Mets, a double. The inning was highlighted by a Jimmy Rollins error to keep the Mets rally going. The crowd celebrated with a well deserved Jim-my Roll-ins chant.

The Mets record is now 5-2 and the Phillies are 1-6. Click here for the full story and the box score.

Game 6 Preview- In Atlanta 1:05pm SNY

Today’s game is always the most interesting type… coming off a loss. I’m interested in seeing El Duque not allow a loss yesterday to turn into a losing streak today. The weather report for Atlanta says 54 degrees, partly cloudy, with little wind. That’ll be a welcome change from yesterday.

Mike Pelfrey really should be starting this game. I know they left him off the roster because of the abundance of off-days, and Glavine likes to stay on his regimen of pitching every five days. They should have held Hernandez until tomorrow.

Kyle Davies goes for the Braves today. He’s only 23 years old but he was awful for the Braves last year in 14 starts. He was 3-7 with a 8.83 ERA. Yikes! He’s another one these local guys that the Braves seem to love, he’s from Decatur, GA.

Braves 5 Mets 3- First loss of the season

It was a strange game today because it was unusually cold in Atlanta, and the wind was whipping. Glavine didn’t look nearly as sharp as he did in St. Louis. The defense really didn’t look very sharp, Delgado couldn’t even catch the simplest throws to him. The Mets had a little rally going against Wickman in the ninth, but couldn’t quite put it together. The Mets go to 4-1 as do the Braves. Click here for the box score.

Game 4 Recap- Mets 11 Braves 1

The Mets go to 4-0 and the Braves to 3-1. Oliver Perez looks great through seven innings. Maybe Rick Peterson has him headed in the right direction. The hits keep coming for this team. Reyes had two triples… that’s incredible! Hope is still alive for a 162-0 season. Get ready for Glavine and Smoltz tomorrow. That’s the game not to miss in this series.
