Glavine Gets Win #299

From Tommy at Bleed Orange And Blue (Network Member):


Tom Glavine
Tom Glavine, Tom Glavine. Tonight he wins career victory 299. No, he did not have a mental breakdown today after being handed another 6-0 lead. He did give 3 runs back to the Pirates, but it was ok. Here is the story:

Glavine pitched 6 innings gave up 3 runs while striking out 2. The best part of his outing was in the first inning. After loading up the bases with 3 walks, Glavine got a double play ball to end the inning.

Aaron Heilman
Pitched 2 perfect innings, striking out 2. I like it when he pitched multiple innings.

Billy Wagner

Wagner picked up his 23rd save of the year by pitching well in the 9th only hitting a batter.

Paul Lo Duca
Paul Lo Duca drove in 4 of the first 5 Mets players. He ended up 2-4. Best of all, he did not give a player, umpire or anybody else a dirty look!

Lastings Milledge
Milledge ended his 6 straight hit streak fouling out in the bottom of the 4th. He was 2-4 and got hit by a pitch again.

Jason Bay
Bay hit another homer, his 3rd of the series, a fifth inning 2 run homer off Tom Glavine.

Summary
All in all it was a good game for the Mets.

The only negative thing (to me, not really to any of you) is that Tom Glavine is going to go for win number 300 on Tuesday against the Mets. You are probably thinking, what does it matter? It matters to me because I am going on this Mets road trip to Milwaukee. That is 5 out of the 6 games. That one game is the Tuesday game that Glavine is going for win 300. This really stinks.
Good Night.
