The Mets and Cubs were tied 1-1 after the first two innings. Pat Misch pitched an unbelievable game too. He went 7 strong innings only allowing the 1 run on 6 hits and 2 walks.

The Mets took a 2-1 lead on a double off the wall in left by Fernando Tatis in the eighth. But the bottom of the inning was a disaster for Brian Stokes. And he’s been pitching so well lately. He gave up 3 hits and a walk while only getting one out. One of those hits was a 3-run bomb by Alfonso Soriano. That was the game.

The Mets and Cubs play two more day games over the weekend.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
