Game Recap: The Young and the Restless

Chris Young pretty much led the Mets (3-1) to a 7-1 victory over the Phillies (3-1), pitching 5.1 innings of 1-run ball, while striking out seven Phillies batters.

Young even contributed at the plate, hitting three singles, including two in the six run total domination of the Phillies. According to the team's Twitter page, Young became the first Mets pitcher to have two hits in the same inning in franchise history.

David Wright had a strong night at the plate, going 4-for-5 with 2 RBI. This raises his young season average to .412. Where are all the David Wright haters? Hmmmm....I don't know, could they have been silenced by his awesomeness?

But the night really belonged to Chris Young, who I hope Terry Collins seriously considers as a pinch-hitter, much like in the olden days of when Dontrelle Willis would pinch hit. Whatever happened to Dontrelle Willis anyway?

Tomorrow, the Mets take on the Phillies again with Mike Pelfrey going up against Joe Blanton. Game time is at 7:05 PM.

David Wright Strikeout Counter: $0.40
