Game 85 - Mets
Mets 11, Cardinals 1
TWIB Notes: Mike Pelfrey threw another brilliant game tonight . . . Cardinals pitcher Mitchell Boggs did not (6 IP, 10 H, 11 R, 6 BB, 2 K, 1 HR) . . . Jose Reyes hit his 62nd career triple tonight, a three-run one no less. It tied him with the venerable Mookie Wilson for all-time triples by a Met. He could also catch the Mookster in stolen bases this year . . . That's probably the only other such milestone for the Mets this year, though it would be nice if David Wright could hit 11 more taters and displace Todd Hundley in the all-time Mets Top 5 HR list. Such an eyesore . . . Ryan "Under the Milky Way" Church continues to get it done and be one of the reasons we're still paying close attention . . . same goes for Endy . . . somebody get me a #10 Mets t-shirt . . . Dee-Dub tweaked his back ducking under a scorching line drive while leading off first. . . fingers crossed . . . Luis Castillo went on the DL today. The sun rose in the east today, too . . . Chris "Two Shots At" Aguila came up from New Orleans. He was joined by Argenis Reyes, to whom I say "That's gonna cause a little confusion. Mind if we call you Bruce to keep it clear?" Howls of derisive laughter . . .
. . . Significantly, the Mets take on the Phillies of Philthadelphia tomorrow evening at 7:00 pm. More significantly, it's the fourth of July (so says John Doe) and Johan Santana takes the hill in the first contest of a key four-game series. Most significantly, my brother-in-law and I will be there. Can't wait to immerse myself in the Philly fan warmth.
