The game started off great as the Mets loaded the bases with no out in the first. Clean up hitter Jason Bay was in prime position to bust out of his 2 year slumber but managed only a sac fly.
I guess that should be seen as a victory for Bay but the truth is it put a huge damper on what could have been a rally that buried the Yankees before the came to bat.
The sac fly would’ve been the only run we scored if not for a killer AB by Turner. Young Justin battled Burnett with 2 out and 2 on for 8 pitches before serving a single to plate Murphy and give us a 2-0 lead.
Capuano looked good early bit eventually the Yankee Coors Field effect took it’s toll as HR after HR sailed out of the Bronx Band-box.
It’s so frustrating to play and lose to the EE I’m that joke of a stadium. I know both teams are playing on the same field but the Mets rarely take advantage of the dimensions.
Oh well, let’s win this series today behind Big Pelf at 1:00.
I was shocked to see this wasn’t the Sunday Nite game. I wonder if this is the first time in 15 years the Subway Series didn’t rate enough to be the national broadcast… Or did we lose that distinction last year…???
