Click here for a recap of yesterday’s game.
Everything worked for the Mets against the Phillies yesterday afternoon at Shea. Pedro Martinez pitches (6 IP, H, ER, 6 SO). Jose Reyes triples (his league leading 9th of the season). Chris Woodward gets 2 hits and knocks in 2 runs from the 8th hole in the order. Carlos Beltran and Cliff Floyd steal 2 bases each. Braden Looper pitches a perfect 9th inning for his 16th save. But brace yourselves. The Marlins are coming to town for the weekend and they’re in much better shape thean the free falling Phillies. This Mets team seems to get up for playing against the tougher teams but you still need to be wary. Especially with Pedro having pitched yesterday (meaning he won’t pitch against Florida). I’m not saying they’re going to lose but be afraid. Be very afraid.
