It wasn’t pretty, but it counted.
Wuertz’s final pitch was a few inches too high, and while Delgado trotted to first base, All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes scored the winning run.
Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright, who started out the season in a slump, has been hitting well lately. Wright helped the team erase a four-run deficit with a two-run homer, his fourth of the year.
Mollie’s bleeds Cub red-and-blue, so I watch a lot of the games with her. (In fact, this blog post is meant to rub it in a bit.) But as much as I enjoyed the Mets win, it just really depresses me to watch the Cubs bullpen.
News on Game Two tomorrow.
(Well, it’s not really a “Game Two,” per se. More like any other “game two,” but because of my relationship, it deserves to be capitalized. You know how it is.)
