Mets Tee Off On Cardinal Pitching Staff...Tie Series At 2
The Mets realized something last night. How do you silence the crowd in the away park? Here's how..... smash 14 hits, score twelve runs, 6 of them in the 6th inning. The St. Louis crowd sat, stunned and mute. And it helped the Mets emerge from their game three funk. With a bang. A huge resounding crash...a deafening explosion. And it was just what they needed. This victory assures Mets fans all over that the NLCS WILL be coming back to Shea, no matter what happens tonight. Or, if the weather forecasts are correct, tomorrow night. And a rainout would surely help their pitching staff and allow Tom Glavine to pitch on his normal 4 days of rest. The same goes for the Cardinals' game one starter Jeff Weaver. So both clubs benefit. As do the fans. That's huge, and will surely lead to baseball at its finest.
As Detroit waits and rests, the eyes of the baseball world await game 5, a pivotal game in any best of seven series. Anytime. Anywhere. Any clubs. But the Mets and their fans are feeling much better than they were before last night's performance....a performance that they can build on... a bridge leading right to the World Series. Or not. Such is the beauty of baseball. Anything can happen. Much like life. Enjoy your Monday!
