Jacoby Ellsbury stole five bases in one game.
The Mets swept the Yankees in this year’s Subway Series, in part because tonight…
– Dillon Gee pitched 7.1 innings, allowing just one run and striking out twelve.
— The Yankees drew a base on balls just twice in the series—both times on Monday.
—- This is the first time the Mets have swept the Yankees in Subway Series history.
—– Via the estimable @ktsharp, Gee is the second pitcher since 1916 with 12 or more strike outs, no walks and four or fewer hits vs the Yankees. The only other pitcher to do that was Pedro Martinez in 1999.
—— John Buck had an infield hit, and then he proceeded to steal a base.
Freddy Garcia pitched eight innings of three hit shutout baseball and did not walk a batter.
Brendan Ryan hit a home run at Petco Park today.
– So did Endy Chavez.
Travis Wood hit a grand slam today.
– He hit the home run off of Jake Peavy; the last time Peavy allowed a pitcher to hit a home run was in 2004.
RA Dickey had an infield hit.
Michael Wacha got a hit today.
– He’s a pitcher.
— He got the hit before he gave up his first hit.
—- He actually did not give up a hit until the fifth inning…
—– Tonight’s his major league debut.
