With their pitching questions, the balance of this series could feature the Mets’ offense. “We went out there with a clean slate, a good approach,’’ said Carlos Delgado, who drove in five runs and now has nine in the NLCS.
The Mets worked the count, and that will be key tomorrow night against Jeff Weaver, who, like the Mets’ Tom Glavine is working on three days rest.
The forecast is for rain, but Willie Randolph said he’d rather play and not rest. The school of thought on that is the Mets have changed the momentum, and it could be lost in the rain. Sure, Glavine would get another day, but so would Weaver. And, the Mets’ thinking is they have the better bullpen and with the offense turned on, it’s better to keep playing.
