So the Mets have played their last game ever at the original Yankee Stadium (unless of course there is a Subway Series rematch, ha-ha).
A very strange game. Neither Depressed Fan nor I got to watch the onslaught first hand, as we both had some work to do today. The important news: The Mets won 15–6.
Carlos Delgado set a New York Mets record with nine RBIs. He hit a two-run double in the fifth off Edwar Ramirez, then hit his 12th career grand slam in the sixth against Ross Ohlendorf. Delgado piled on with a three-run homer in the eighth off LaTroy Hawkins, his 13th home run of the season.
Whose RBI record did old Carlos break? Our favorite: Kingman.
Yes indeed. Dave Kingman drove in eight runs for the Mets in an 11-0 victory at the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 4, 1976.
The Mets are at .500 for the moment. Can Pedro outlast the Arubian Nightmare Sidney Ponson? Stay tuned.
