YANKEE STADIUM III
161st Street and River Avenue
Last night, R.A. Dickey was just a little better than Freddie Garcia was. The Mets have been waiting for a game like that from Dickey this season. And it couldn't have come at a better time. Last night's 2-1 Mets' victory over their cross-town rival Bombers, got the Mets to the magical mark of...
TERRY's KIDS just keep doing what no one expects of them. That's what makes this all the more fun to watch. We know what kind of a team we are and what situation we're in. But the Flushing Bisons have been an awfully fun bunch to watch. But fun is one thing; Pitching is another.
Dickey's line from last night:
6 ~ innings pitched
1 ~ run
3 ~ walks
6 ~ strikeouts
I'll take it! Dickey's knuckle ball was fluttering and flustering the Yankees all night. But tonight, I'm not so sure. With Burnett facing Capuano, things might get ugly for both pitchers. Don't be surprised to see them both gone by the fourth inning. Batting practice anyone?
To our great joy, the Mets have been pitching lights-out lately. Dickey's effort was the third consecutive impressive effort handed in by Mets pitching. And the bullpen has been equally shut-down as well.
Mets' Pitching Line, Last Three Games (Gee; Niese; Dickey plus Bullpen):
27 innings pitched.
1 home run surrendered.
1 run surrendered.
And there-in lies the secret to the Mets'success lately; Good old fashioned Met Pitching and timely hitting by TERRY'S KIDS.
A.J. just delivered the first pitch of Game Two. Let's Go Mets!!!
