Dickey, Mets Beat Yanks, Hold Them To One RunPosted: May 21, 2011
It’s been a busy couple of days for me and I have a busy one ahead of me so I’m going to make this recap pretty quick. I would have liked for it to be a win, but hopefully the Yanks can take the next two. Here it is:
- Freddy Garcia was actually pretty good. He allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in seven innings, while only throwing 95 pitches (60 strikes). He was unable to get Justing Turner out, however, who had three hits, and he of course gave back the one run the Yanks got for him right away.
- The little bullpen that we saw was also good. Joba Chamberlain pitched a scoreless eighth while David Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth. They combined to allow two hits while striking out four.
- Offensively, this game was just awful. The only run came on a Mark Teixeira solo shot in the third which barely squeaked over the right field fence.
- Another bullpen shut out the Yanks as in the last three innings, all thrown by Met relievers, through perfect baseball and struck out five.
- It was another game of failing with RISP as the Bombers went 1-for-10. If I go into any more depth about that, I might cry so we’ll just leave it at that.
So it wasn’t the best way to start of the Subway Series, but we still have two more to be played this weekend. Tonight, it will be AJ Burnett against Chris Capuano at 7:00 on FOX.
