Crazy 9th inning as each team’s D did their best to give the game away. What a shame to see Pelfrey’s latest very solid outing go to waste but more important is Big Pelf looked effective and confident all afternoon.
I don’t know why the SNY guys initially blamed Tejada for not catching Belt’s game tying “double” with 2 out in the 9th. It was painfully obvious it was Nieuwenheis’ play. The ball was VERY deep for a SS to get to and was comfortably in front of the CF who merely overran the ball.
But luckily the Giants gave it back when 1st Huff missed an assignment to pivot at second and turn 2. Instead he broke towards first on contact … Which is exactly what happens when you put a 35 yr old vet who’s never played second before at second base.
So Burriss, now at short, was forced to throw to first and he got the runner but the ump blew the call in our favor.
After that Posey helped more when he threw wide left to 1st after getting the force at the plate in the 9th. He may have been interfered with as Hairston slid into him.
Sunday is rubber game and would be an important win to get…
Unbelievable to watch our ex-prospect Humber thrown a perfect game. 27 up and 27 down. Good for him… Torture for the Mets who are now at 50 years plus w/o a no-no.
Meanwhile, I don’t blame the ump for helping the kid out but Ryan DID NOT swing at that final pitch which was clearly a ball.
How the F did the yankees come back on BOS after trailing 9-0 in the 5th to win 15-9. They were booing Bobby V who has gotten off to a less that ideal start up there - Wow! Didn’t see that coming.
