Carlos Beltran haters, please shut up.
I would have to say he's earning his money now.
A Grand Salami 2 games in a row. (first met since Robin Ventura in a double header against the Brewers, 1999)
Takes over the RBI lead. 27 HRs.
Hit that GS in the 7th to extend the lead from one run to 5. Added an RBI double in the 9th.
And what about Xavier Nady...solo shot in the 3rd. Guns down Royce Clayton trying to stretch that RBI single to a double in the 6th, got out of a possible disaster inning.
And we cant forget about Mike Pelfrey. Pitched "OK" getting into trouble over and over, but his sinker was working excellent, and he induced double plays to end the inning in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. Two of those DP's came off Griffey Jr's bat. He went 6 giving up 7 hits, 3 BB, and struck out 3.
Its good to have Reyes back. He went 0-4 with a walk and a FC, but scored 2 runs. He also forced Delgado to come off the bag twice with errant throws to first. But delgado still managed to get them out, and even joked about where his arm angle should be when throwing.
~Delgado is 5 for his last 33. in a major slump. thank god everyone else keeps hitting. Once were running on all pistons...ohh boy
~Cliff Floyd was finally quited going 0-4 on the day.
~Jose Valentin hit a solo HR in the 5th, extending his hitting streak to 6.
~Pedro is eating normal again.
== 7:10 tonight Traxx vs. Harang.
