METS FEELING BETTER AFTER BIG WIN
It would have been hard to blame the Mets for thinking it would take a
perfect game to beat the Yankees, who entered Game Three of the World
Series Tuesday night in the midst of a 14-game Fall Classic winning streak
which has spanned four Octobers. But the Mets didn't play a perfect game in their
4-2 win over the Yankees which narrowed the Bombers' lead in this World
Series to two games to one--just a perfect Mets game.
The Mets displayed the traits Tuesday night which allowed them to get
to the World Series in the first place: Tough starting pitching, some
much-needed and outstanding relief work, solid defense and just enough timely
hitting to outscore the other guys.
