Hardy, McGehee Power Brewers Past Mets

Well if you wondered where the offense was on this club after getting shutout on Sunday, your questions were answered. The Brewers put up 10 runs on 19 hits to knock off the Mets 10-6 in one of the more memorable games of the season.

The game was memorable for a few reasons, first being Casey McGehee. A brutal dropped catch by McGehee in the 6th inning lead to two unearned Mets runs, and put New York within one. I thought that frustrated was going to get to McGehee when he came up to bat in the bottom half of that inning with the bases loaded, but Casey Mac responded with his first career Grand Slam. The home run put Milwaukee up 7-2, and was subsequently followed by the most angry celebration of a Grand Slam I've ever seen, as well as the shortest curtain call in history. Either way, Redemption is spelled C-A-S-E-Y.

Our Player of the Game honors though actually go to J.J. Hardy, who was overshadowed by McGehee despite a 4-for-4 performance. Hardy was a triple away from the cycle during his fourth at-bat, and nearly pulled it off when his poke went through the Mets outfield. He settled with a double though, but it was a valiant effort.

The other memorable performance came from Trevor Hoffman, who pulled off the rare one-pitch save conversion, which is always nice to see.

Game two of the series tonight at 7:05pm.
