Night Rescued

By the Mets of all people! In a normal year, we'd be one back right now, as the Mets would have found new and exciting ways to give the Yankees two games. But for some reason, they've won two. Tonight, after a Marlon Byrd error gave the Yanks a 1-0 lead going to the bottom of the ninth, Mo came in for the save. He faced three batters. The first doubled, the next singled (and Mo didn't back up home plate, which cost his team as the throw got away moving the winning run to second), and the third singled in the winner. A blown save--Mo never does that! Except in Game 7 of the World Series and stuff. I love how he rolled his eyes after the bloop double that started the inning. That's exactly what the rest of us are doing every time you throw a pitch a foot outside that's called a strike, Mo! Beautiful job by the Mets, keeping us a game in front in the A.L. East.

The Red Sox scored a run off Cliff Lee in the first, but couldn't do John Squat after that in the 3-1 loss. The weird new home/home Interleague Shit Week Series moves to Philly for the next two.
