Game 93: Mets 2 - Rockies 1 (Friday)
Game 94: Mets 3 - Rockies 0 (Saturday)
Even when the Mets face a couple of tough pitchers and only manage 5 runs in two games they still win both of them. After a year of the constant negativity and finding ways to lose, this is a welcome development.
I went to the Saturday game with Lisa. It was my second game of the week after my blogger's outing Wednesday night, and the positive energy permeating Shea Stadium I noted on that outing was present in spades Saturday afternoon, even when Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez looked unhittable in the first three innings.
Unfortunately for your intrepid blogger, his 12-year-old Toyota elected to betray him in the Fairfield, CT train station parking lot upon his return from an afternoon at the game and evening in New York. By the time the tow truck showed up and got Lisa, I, and the old heap home it was 4 am. This is my excuse for a brief post today.
Whatever happens in tonight's game, it appears the Mets are a legitimate contender in the second half despite their first-half struggles. I'd love to see them heading into the break on a 9-game streak, though.
Let's go Mets!
