Â Here we are at the Stadium, in the first of 18 innings. Pelfrey and Pedro for your team today. The Mets are on the board early with David Wright’s RBI single, which is not a surprise.
The Mets have outscored the opposition by 56 runs over the first three innings of the game. However, they’ve been outscored by 62 runs from the fifth through eighth innings, an indication of their starters losing it and the bullpen never having it. Of course, the offense isn’t blameless there, either.
From the pregame:
-Best case scenario has Ryan Church returning Sunday.
-Jerry Manuel called Carlos Delgado “an enigma.’’
-New Met Andy Phillips, who plays first sits while Fernando Tatis, not a first baseman, plays in the first game.
-Jerry Manuel’s decision to start Martinez in the second game was for the fan’s benefit at Shea.
I’ll be with you all day. Take care.
