Let’s have a little fun this morning and take a look at last night’s game by the numbers, shall we?
Eleven - Number of innings played
Ten - Number of players the Mets left on base. This has been a season-long problem for the Mets. Stop it.
Nine - Number of strikeout’s for the Marlins
Eight - Number of innings pitched by Big Pelf. Nice to see him working hard and giving the bullpen a break.
Seven - Number of hits for the Mets (Santos 2, Martinez 2, Castillo 1, Sheffield 1, Pagan 1, Wright 0)
Six - The Mets only went 1 for 6 with RISP
Five - Number of at-bats for David Wright. Number of hits? Zero
Four – Number of strike outs for the Mets (2 for David Wright)
Three – Number of scoreless innings from the ‘pen. Phew!
Two – Number of runs scored by the Mets. Coincidentally, this also happens to be the number of RBIs by our new #2 catcher Omir Santos…. Yeah, he is officially “my boy”.
One - One lonely run for the Marlins, driven in with a sac-fly by second baseman Dan Uggla in the 4th
Zero – Well, would you look at that! Zero errors by the Mets tonight. David Wright just isn’t himself without one!
This game was a little bit of a deja vu of last Saturday’s game at Fenway Park. Pelfrey and Santos make an exciting team – solid pitching and late game heroics. I think I could get used to this!
Also as Nik mentioned last night, the Mets traded Ramon “Shrek” Castro to the White Sox for RHP Lance Broadway. And for all you ladies out there ….talk about an upgrade!!
