Yesterday's Results

Mets 6, Brewers 2

Marco Estrada's problems with the home run ball continued last night, though they were amplified by walks. Estrada allowed two home runs in the game, and the extra four runs that were on base between those two home runs came as a result of four walks issued by Estrada, including three in the seventh inning. Lyle Overbay ended up leading the offense with a 2-for-4 days with an RBI, and Carlos Gomez also had an RBI in the loss.

Cram Session

Unfortunately, I'm having some computer issues today, and my feed reader isn't working as well, so we're going to go through the rest of the links in cram session style.
