Mets Take Commanding 2-0 Lead in NLDS Behind Great Pitching by Tom Glavine

by @ 2:04 am. Filed under 2006 NLDS

Okay, no crazy play at the plate for Dodgers fans to hide behind in this one.  Tom Glavine just shut them down for six innings before the pen did their job in the final three frames.  The only blemish was a solo homerun by Wilson Betemit off of Aaron Heilman in the eighth inning.

The Mets drove in three of their four runs without hits.  Jose Reyes and Julio Franco drove in runs with ground outs and Paul Lo Duca hit a sac. fly in the fifth that scored Jose Valentin.  The final run was scored on an RBI single by Reyes in the sixth.

Game three is Saturday night and it would sure be nice to wrap this series up then.  It’ll be Steve Trachsel going up against Greg Maddux.

Mets Edge Dodgers in Game One of NLDS

by @ 4:27 pm. Filed under 2006 NLDS

Wow, what a game.  The Mets jumped out to an early lead, saw it disappear and then came back to win it.

The Dodgers got on the board first.  Marlon Anderson doubled home Russ Martin in the second inning and that was the last lead the Dodgers had.  Carlos Delgado and Cliff Floyd hit solo shots in the fourth and then David Wright doubled home two runs in the sixth to give the Mets a 4-1 lead.

Then the Dodgers struck.  Three runs in the seventh in an inning capped off by Nomar Garciaparra’s two run double and just like that the game was tied.  Fortunately it was short lived because the Mets got two runs in the bottom half of the inning to take the lead for good.  Carlos Delgado singled home Jose Reyes and David Wright doubled home Carlos Beltran.

Billy Wagner got into trouble in the ninth inning and gave up a run but he struck out Nomar to strand the tying run at second base.  The game had it’s ups and downs and like the Mets season, they did what they needed to win.

Tomorrow, Tom Glavine will go up against Hong-Chih Kuo.  Hopefully the Mets can head to Los Angeles with a 2-0 lead.
