Nationals 1, Mets 0 (top of the 9th)
Keith Hernandez described the $5 charge for Shea hot dogs as “highway robbery”. Jeff Wilpon might suggest another choice of words
Mike Pelfrey took a no-hitter into the top of the 7th until an Aaron Boone liner to right ended the righthander’s bid. The Nats’ Jason Bergman struck out 9 Mets through 7 innings, pretty impressive considering the Rutgers product came into Thursday’s game with an ERA of 11.68.
(UPDATE : Fuck Willie Harris.)
The Dodgers jumped all over Ben Sheets today in Milwaukee. There’s probably a great reason why Ned Yost didn’t pull Sheets before he’d allowed 6 runs in the 6th inning, and I suspect it has something to do with the guys in the pen getting tired of answering calls from robots.
