Mets 9 – Yankees 7… The Mets took game 1 of the Subway Series after 2 great comebacks and awesome hitting.
If the Mets are gonna keep this up, they need to do what they did last night. Only 2 of the Mets 9 runs came on a hit other than a HR. The Mets hit 4 homers vs. the Yankees last night.
Bartolo Colon pitched like himself last night with another 6 run outing but struck out 4 and walked 0. Colon’s tires and 18 win season with the A’s last year is certainly in the books but he should find a way to improve a 2-5 record. The Mets hitting went well with 14 hits. David Wright went 1-5 with a RBI groundout in the 1st inning and a run. Eric Young Jr. had a 2 run blast, 2 runs and 3 hits in the win. Curtis Granderson went 2-5 with a 2 run homer against his former team. Lucas Duda and Travis d’Arnaud solo homered and d’Arnaud added a 2nd run. Lastly, Chris Young had a big night going 2-4 with a go- ahead 2 run blast.
For NYY, Brett Gardner went 2-5 with a Grand Salami in the 2nd. Derek Jeter went 3-4 in the loss. Yangervis Solarte had a big night going 3-4 with 2 runs and a RBI. Marcus Thornton was charged with the loss when he let up 2 runs.
Jenrry Mejia was moved to the bullpen to make room for rookie SP Rafael Montero in the staff. Montero had been doing great with the triple-A Las Vegas squad. Mejia got his 4th win last night in a great outing. The Mets are now finding any good pitcher, starter or not, to improve their bullpen. Today, the Mets and Yankees will clash at 7:05 at Yankee Stadium barring a possible rain delay. Zach Wheeler will be on the hill for NYM while Vidal Nuno will go out for the Yanks.
Marlins young ace and defending rookie of the year, Jose Fernandez will possibly need season ending elbow surgery. Yup another pitcher with this case. There is a whole list of names I can relate to this situation including Mets ace last year, Matt Harvey.
My fantasy team went from here ————————————————–
to here———————————- with the loss of him. Same with the Marlins (sorry Luke )
Last night LeBron James had a playoff high 49 against the Nets and his Heat won 102- 96 to go up 3-1. The Trail Blazers stayed alive vs. the Spurs after winning by 11 last night. Damian Lillard had 25 in the win.
