A night after getting their guts ripped out by the Phillies, the Mets put it all behind them with a 6-3 win. Jose Reyes broke the 3-3 tie with a 3-run HR in the 7th inning. The two teams are once again tied for first atop the NL East.
For now, those two teams know that if they want to get into the playoffs, they better not rely on the wild card. It seems that the wild card will come out of the NL Central. Yeah, yeah, it’s early – whatevs.
C.C. Sabathia had a no-hitter going into the 6th, where it was broken up by Cardinal Brendan Harris. However, the Brewers win the game, 3-0, with Sabathia going the distance. He’s been with the Brewers for 4 starts, has pitched 33 innings (three games where he pitched 9 innings!), and has allowed 5 runs and 20 hits. Outstanding. (Psst, hey, Omar! I thought that was how Johan was going to pitch for us!)
Over in the AL, Mike Mussina continues his good pitching, and the Yankees win their 6th in a row. Pfft.
The Red Sox beat the Mariners 6-3, in 12 innings. That guy ran out onto the field, and I love a streaker. So there ya go. One word of advice for our streaker – “streaking” means that you’re naked. Otherwise, you’re just running across the field. Runner.
The Tigers beat the Royals, 7-1. In more important news, the Royals wore their powder blues!
In other powder blue news, the Blue Jays were beating the Orioles, until their game was suspended in the 6th inning because of rain.
In NCAA CFB news, Caleb Campbell was going to start training camp with the Detroit Lions till the US Army told him “Not so fast.” He might be joining his fellow West Point grads over in Iraq. Hmmm, Lions training camp or Iraq? Cadets are now required to complete two years of active duty before they can get a release. It sucks that his hopes of playing in the NFL have been put on hold, but I don’t believe he should be treated any differently than any other West Point graduate.
