Hit & Run: 3, 3 games up, AH AH AH

There will come a day when I will not open my Hit & Run with the Mets.  That day is not today.  They won yesterday, 9-2, completing a 3-game sweep of the Brewers. 

Ryan Church’s grand slam and Brian Schneider’s solo HR produced six Mets runs in the first, and Ollie Perez did the rest, going 6 2/3 innings.  The Phillies lost to the Nationals, 9-7, so the Mets’ lead in the NL East is now 3 games.  Meanwhile, the Cubs lost to the Astros, 4-0, keeping their 4 1/2 game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central.

The Diamondbacks came back from 3-0, to beat the Cardinals 4-3.  Adam Dunn had the game-winning double, which scored Conor Jackson.  That’s good for the ‘Backs, since the Dodgers won late against the Padres, 6-4.

The Yankees beat the Rays, 8-4, and this was the first game in which instant replay was used for an A-Rod HR in the 9th.  I thought this pic of A-Rod was too cute not to post.

Little Dustin Pedroia continues to hold his own, going 3-for-4, just a triple shy of the cycle, in the Red Sox’s 5-4 win over the Orioles.  A 9th inning throwing error allowed Alex Cora to jog home with the winning run.

Go, Rafa.

  2. I spent the first 8 years of my life on Long Island, so I’ve always had a soft spot for the Mets (I had a crush on Ed Kranepool, if you can believe it). Now I live in Iowa and root for the Cubs. So you can imagine how grateful I am to metschick’s team for sweeping the Brewers and postponing the all-too-familiar heartbreak for another week.
