Box Score

Recap

At the Plate:


  • Carlos Delgado was 2 for 5 with a homer and 4 RBIs (not by a Grand Slam)
  • Carlos Beltran was 2 for 4 with a walk and 2 RBIs.
  • Brian Schneider was 2 for 4 with a walk and 3 RBIs. All of which came in the 7th inning when Schneider broke the game open with a 3 RBI double.
On the Rubber:

  • Mike Pelfrey started and went 5 innings. He gave up 4 runs, all of which were in the first. He walked 4, struck out 2 and ended up throwing 104 pitches (56 strikes)
  • Bobby Parnell followed by throwing a no hit scoreless inning although walking 2. Parnell might have pitched another inning but the Mets hit so well the following inning that they had to pinch hit for Parnell.
  • Pedro Feliciano followed and threw 2/3 of a inning giving up 2 runs.
  • Sean Green then game in to bail out Feliciano and he did that in one batter.
  • J.J. Putz then came in to pitch the 8th and he gave up his first run of the season.
  • Frankie Rodreiguez then came in for the 9th and had some control issues. He went 2-0 on every batter he faced. Frankie ended up throwing 30 pitches in his 1 inning of work. More on that later in the post.
Time of Game:
The game ended up going 3 hours and 56 minutes. In total the Mets walked 9 batters and the Reds walked 7 batters It will be a long game when in total 16 walks in the game and that goes with 2 mid-inning pitching changes.
The Bottom of the 9th:
In the bottom of the 9th, Brandon Phillips led of the inning with a walk. Frankie then got Jay Bruce to pop out. Then on a bad call, Edwin Encarnacion reached on a error by Carlos Delgado. What happened was that Phillips ran on the pitch, David Wright threw it to first and Brandon Phillips tries to go to 3rd so Carlos Delgado throws it to 3rd but the 1st base umpire, Bill Welkie, says that Delgado’s foot came off the bag when he caught it so he could throw it to 3rd. Brandon Phillips ends up getting to 3rd safely. Then a walk by Remon Hernandez loads the bases. Frankie then strikes out Alex Gonzalez and get Lance Nix to fly out to Center for the win.
K-Rod and Schnieder
Player of Game:

I am giving it to Carlos Delgado for his 4 RBIs although it could have easily gone to Carlos Beltran or Brian Schneider.

Up Next:

Today at 1 PM Oliver Perez will take the mound on SNY.

    “The more things change, the more they stay the same,” is how the saying goes. Luckily we had just enough firepower to get by. Good write-up again. Do you mind if I put a link to your page in the links list on my blog? I’ve been doing a similar thing immediately after the game, but writing it as an article instead. Let me know what you think.
