Game 69: Finally in first.
CC was well…..CC. He went out there and showed why he’s making big money in the Bronx and not somewhere else. He threw 8 scoreless innings, giving up only four hits, walking two and striking out six. Can’t ask for more than that, short of a complete game. Mo came in for the 9th and since it wasn’t a save situation, just preserved the win. As though it needed preserving.
Aside from Mark’s 3rd inning grand slam, we got no offense today, but seeing as CC was basically making the Mets his personal b.!tch, we didn’t need more than the grand slam. So we got lucky. Both Derek and Jorge went 2-4, so they get honorable mentions. I wish the blurb about the offense could be a little more descriptive…..but we didn’t get much. Hope our series against Arizona is a burner. At least there’s no Luis Gonzalez this time. *gag*
