Baseball: Yesterday not 1, but 2 players hit 3 HR’s in their games. Lets start with Nationals Ryan Zimmerman. His 1st HR was in the 1st, it was hit to left-center and 429 feet long. In the 4th he homered to center on another solo that went 413 feet. Then to top his performance he hit his 3rd HR in the 5th inning he hit to Right and scored Denard Span to put the Nats up 6-2. Despite his performance the Orioles came back with 7 runs. Chris Davis did not have 3 HR’s but he did have 2 and had 3 RBI’s to put him at 19 HR’s on the year. Now we go to Chicago for the 2nd HR performance from Cubs Catcher Dioner Navarro. He started in the 2nd when he hit a solo HR to left center that went 388ft. Then in the 4th inning he drove in Scott Hariston on a 370 foot HR to left. Then to finish his performance he drove in Anthony Rizzo and Alfonso Soriano home when that baseball went screaming for 455ft into right field. The Cubs won 9-3.
Now something amazin’ happened last night when the Mets beat the Yanks at Yankee Stadium to lead the series 3-0. If the Mets win today this will be their 1st time sweeping the Yanks in 4 years. In this series the Mets have knocked the Yanks out of 1st place,beat them with a walk off 2 run inning off Mo and won 9-4 at Yankee Stadium. This has been a Amazin’ series for the Mets. Finally something to root about.
