Pregame

My Opinion:

I don’t get why in the 7th, Tatis didn’t bunt. Down 1 run, 1st and 2nd, nobody out, they should have hit with Castillo (who I don’t usually like) and bunt with him.

Postgame: Brewers 4 at Mets 5 (Game 1)

Today the Mets won in dramatic fashion against the Brewers at Citi Field.

W- J.J. Putz (1-0)
L – Seth McClung (0-1)
Box Score/Recap

At the Plate:
  • The Mets scored 3 runs in the first inning.
  • Gary Sheffield hit home run number 500 in his career and was the first Mets player to ever hit their 500th career home run in a Mets uniform.
  • In the 9th, Carlos Delgado leads off with a double. Then Carlos Beltran strikes out. Then Ryan Church is intentionally walked which brings up the catcher, Omir Santos, who came in when they pinch hit for Castro due to Schnieder going on the DL. Santos hits a ground ball so lightly hit that it isn’t a double play.
  • Then Luis Castillo comes up and hits a infield hit to J.J. Hardy and Delgado scores.
On the Mound:
  • Livan Hernandez was great the first time through the order but ran into trouble in the 5th and 6th. He gave up 4 runs through 5+.
  • The bullpen didn’t give up a run after that.
  • It only took J.J. Putz, 11 pitches to get through the 9th and earn the win.
My Thoughts:
I am not a big fan of Sheffield but congratulations on home run 500. I wasn’t expecting it so soon and it was very clutch Gary. Luis Castillo is starting to come back. He was doing what he should be doing in the 9th. Slap it the other way.

Player of Game:
The Player of Game goes to Gary Sheffield for being the first Mets player to reach 500 home runs as a Met. 
Up Next:
Tomorrow the Mets will play the Brewers at 1:10.
