~~ Yankees 5, Mets 2 ~~
There are two maybe three stories about this game. It was the first game for Colon off the D.L. What is significant is he didn’t have any rehab starts, even so he pitched like he had never been gone. His numbers are 5 innings pitched, 5 hits, no runs, no errors, no walks and 6 strikeouts, 2.88 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. Welcome back Mr Colon, we missed you. Cory Wade pitched 2 scoreless innings. Sergio Mitre, who had been traded and was with the Brewers is back, amazingly the Yankees acquired him during the series with the Brewers. He did not pitch amazingly.
The Yankees were scoreless until the 6th inning. And then in the big ball park, the one stupid Mets fans say is a real ballpark, the one with the court order against it for violating State law, the one that NO ONE can hit a home run in, Granderson hit a home run. Yes the Grandyman can, then Mark got on base, then Alex, then Cano hit a two-run RBI triple. Then Cano scores on a sacrifice fly by Nick Swisher. Because that ball park is so huge, if you hit it to the warning track, they can’t throw it in. And just like that, the score was 4-0 Yankees. And stayed that way until the 9th when, Eduardo Nunez hits a home run. Now the score is 5-0 top of the ninth and Mitre comes into pitch. SIGH
Good thing we had a 5 run lead.
