Mets vs Braves at Shea Stadium

POST #    1672

(click image for larger version)

Last night, I headed over to Shea Stadium, hoping to catch a great game between the Braves and the Mets. Pitching for the Braves was John Smoltz against Pedro Martinez for the Mets. Pedro didn't exactly hold up his end of the deal, giving up 3 runs in the top of the 1st. Smoltz did well, giving up only 1 run and was bailed out of a potential jam in the 7th inning. The Mets eventually lost 4-3, making it exciting in the 9th.

It was my first game of the season and we all sat in the upper deck with tickets bought before the game. The wait at the game day sales booths were soo long. It seemed like all 31,511 people were buying tickets at the same time. Okay, only 10,000, but that's still a lot.

I have to say that I love Smoltz (he is from Michigan, after all), although the last time I saw the Smoltz vs. Pedro lineup here in Atlanta the result was not quite the same....
