Washington’s Gary Majewski just took a tailor made DP grounder from Paul Lo Duca (pretend the tailor was the guy who came up with assless jeans) and threw it into centerfield, allowing pinch-runner Endy Chavez to scamper home with the winning run.
Majewski’s error got Jose Reyes off the hook ; the Mets shortstop was hung up between 2nd and 3rd after his 5th innning liner had sailed over Alfonso Soriano’s head. A Lo Duca double to left moments later would’ve easily scored the Mets’ 2nd run were it not for Reyes’ baserunning gaffe.
You wouldn’t have figured on Ramon Ortiz and Victor Zambrano to hook up for their best starts of the year, but then again, there’s all kinds of big surprises on this date in history.
Carlos Delgado hit a solo HR to left field off Ortiz in 6th, providing SNY with one of many gratuitious shots of Jerry Seinfeld cheering and looking like a citizen who doesn’t need his privacy invaded.
Doug Mirabelli might’ve arrived in Boston via jet tonight, but it was a pitch from Mike Myers that departed via rocketship. I wonder how many times a day the Twins wish they still had David Ortiz, fewer than a hundred?
Atlanta’s Tim Hudson threw a complete game one-hitter against the Rockies Monday evening. Colorado’s lone hit came from the bat of offensive dynamo Jason Jennings.
I don’t wanna be cruel, but R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball isn’t fooling hitters in the PCL any more than it did in the American League.
