The New York Mets ruined Opening Day for the defending World Series Champions tagging their ace, Chris Carpenter for five earned runs. Tom Glavine looked sharp, got himself out of a few jams and the defense played excellent.

 

Lo Duca had 3 R.B.I's

 

Delgado had 2 R.B.I's

 

Beltran had 1 R.B.I

 

Tom Glavine recorded his 291st victory leaving him just 9 wins short of 300 wins in his career!

2nd Game of the Season: Mets 4 over Cardinals 1

 

Orlando Hernandez pitched seven strong innings giving up just one run as the Mets took game two and esured themselves of winning their first series of the year. El Duque was hot with his bat as well by driving in two runs to help himself get the victory.

 

Before the game, the Cardinals were given their much deserved World Series rings but the Mets once again ruined another celebration for the Red Birds!

3rd Game of the Season: Mets 10 over Cardinals 0

 

 

John "Lights Out" Maine pitched a one hitter through seven strong innings and outlasted Brandon Looper to earn his first victory of the year and completed the Opening Series Sweep of the Defending World Series Champions!

 

Beltran smacked two homeruns, Reyes blasted his first homerun, Wright showed that effort does pay off and LoDuca was near perfect at the plate!

Although it's too late to do anything about the bitter disappointment of last fall, the New York Mets certainly put a damper on the St. Louis Cardinals' season-opening celebrations.

 

John Maine kept the Cardinals' bats quiet with seven innings of one-hit ball and Carlos Beltran homered twice and drove in four runs, helping the Mets sweep the World Series champions with a 10-0 victory Wednesday night.

 

"We can't change history, so we just came out excited about the first part of the season," manager Willie Randolph said. "It just happens that the Cardinals were the team, that's all. No extra incentive."

 

Jose Reyes also homered and had three RBIs for the Mets, who were 8-1 to start last season en route to an NL-high 97 wins before they were eliminated by the Cardinals in the NLCS. Playing for much lower stakes but making a statement nonetheless, the Mets outscored the Cardinals 20-2.
