Mets @ Cubs

Great game. I was really looking forward to this, just from reading about the pitching matchup, and I wasn't disappointed. Zambrano was erratic but fun to watch, and El Duque was great. All around, both defenses seemed to play pretty tight for most of the game. The cracks that started showing in the eighth opened right up in the final inning, and for a minute it seemed like every pitch was another Mets hit. The Cubs seemed like they might be starting a rally in the bottom of the inning, with some sloppy fielding on the part of the Mets, until a double play took the wind out of their sails. A really satisfying and dramatic 6-2 victory for my dear New York Mets.
