|Opening Day 2009|
Written by Bjoern Hartig (Contact & Archive) on April 06, 2009
I'm watching Mets @ Reds on high definition over the internet and it is amazing. Much better than last year.
Mets ace Johan is a bit wild, but highly effective so far (6K, 4BB, 1H), while his opponent Aaron Harang is laboring. However, despite seven hits and three walks in five innings, Harang has kept his team in the game, giving up only one run in five innings. He's probably done for the day now, having thrown more than 100 pitches already. I expect the Mets to come through against the Reds bullpen, but we'll see.
Update: I'm testing the picture in picture function to check the Rangers - Indians game, but the game does not show. Hm.
Update: Reds lefty Herreira walks Santana and Reyes after giving up a double and the bases are loaded for the Mets with one out. Time to break it open.
Update: The Mets only get one runs and now lead 2-0.
Update: The Reds finally get to Santana, scoring a run on a sac fly. With two out and a runner on second, Manuel goes to his bullpen. Lets see if all the money spent on arms pays off or if the Mets pen blows another potential W for Johan.
Update: The Mets get lucky and out of the inning on a hard liner to Murphy in left field.
Update: Dusty Baker is critized by the Mets broadcasters for not bringing in lefty Arthur Rhodes against the left-hitting Carlos Delgado with the bases loaded in the last inning and instead starting the next inning with him.
Update: The Yankees get two back on a home run by Jorge Posada and a ground-rule double by Nady. Jeter gets an infield single, but Nady is trapped between home and third because he thought the ball went to the outfield. 6-3 Orioles.
Update: At 1 a.m. central European time, my opening day comes to an end, unfortunately. I will have to watch the end of the game tomorrow morning.
