Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that I use the METS SHOW MUSCLE caption every chance I get. If we're lucky, I'll use it again tomorrow night!
You all saw the game. It was awesome!
Check out the cards.
Tejada got a nice hand from the Citi Field crowd.
Love the cane!
Good to see Rusty up and around.
Shrewd move Mattingly. Ya jerk.
Matt didn't have his good stuff but he battled through 5 innings. He settled down after giving up 3 runs in the 2nd.
Granderson with a clutch bases loaded double has New York answering right back to take the lead in their half of the second.
Huge homer from lil d'!
We needed his bat to wake up and it did, with 3 hits & 3 RBI.
Cespedes viciously attacked a Wood fastball and sent it into orbit. It was Yoenis second homer in the NLDS.
He also went 3 for 5 and drove in 3.
Colon came on in the fifth and pitched a shut down inning.
Colon went two, surrendering 1 run.
Granderson drove in another two runs in the 7th to make the score 13-4 New York. Curtis drove in a total of five runs.
Things got a little bumpy as Eric Goeddel gave up a 3 run homer in the 9th, but Jeurys Familia came on to close the deal.
