I’m expecting a turnaround game tonight from John Maine. For whatever reason, he didn’t look good vs. Braves, but I have a feeling he’ll come up big tonight.
No Jimmy Rollins tonight for the Phillies.
In-game analysis: Mets 4, Philadelphia 3 (12)
TWELVE INNINGS:Â Angel Pagan comes through and it looks like the Mets caught a break on the call at the plate.
BOTTOM OF THE ELEVENTH: Scott Schoeneweis came up big.
EIGHTH INNING: You just saw 2007 in capsule form. The bullpen giving it up and the offense failing in the clutch.
SEVENTH INNING: Maine was fortunate to get out of the sixth, but couldn’t get one out in the seventh. Good luck for him, but Pedro Feliciano struck out the side.
FOURTH INNING: Nice bit of hitting by Ryan Church in going the opposite way for two-run single. Both he and Brian Schneider have hit well so far.
THROUGH THREE INNINGS: Maine dealing so far. He got away with a mistake last inning. Adam Eaton also on his game. Jose Reyes hit the ball hard, but if the balls aren’t dropping, what’s wrong with dropping down a bunt?
