Game 13 - Mets
When in Doubt, Play Montreal

Mets 4, Expos 1
Record: 6-7

Was last weekend's Pirate debacle just a terrible dream, perhaps a misguided fantasy starring Johnny Depp? No looking at the roadkill in the rear view mirror, boys. Stay on target. Lotta ball left. [I read that somewhere.]

There's nothing like playing the 2-11 San Montreal Expos to cure what ails you. Thanks go to Rob Russell for jinxing us, though. (See below.) Couldn't you at least wait until this series is through?

Rookie Tyler Yates shut down the Interns (hopeful future Senators) for five and two-thirds, and the bullpen held them scoreless for the remainder. Braden Looper had to throw 21 pitches but skated out with his third save. That was the easy part, according to Monsieur Russell's stats. Karim Garcia and Ty Wigginton's bombs provided more than enough O for NY to end the skid and move on.
