2006 NLDS NYM v. LAD Game 1 Linescore of the Day: Carlos Delgado

4 for 5, HR, 2 runs, 2 rbis

First, let’s get this out of the way. Do you think Nomar wants to take back that last swinging strike to end the game? He looked like a little leaguer on that one. Or at least Rob Deer.

No doubt on Carlos Delgado for this one. Delgado held the record for most games played (1711) without a postseason appearance until yesterday. Boy, did he make the most of his first one.

John Maine held his own in the game. He was helped by Delgado’s blast and LoDuca’s double play at the plate. Randolph had a quick trigger and he was out by the fifth but that is the nature of the postseason. Nonetheless, one run in 4 1/3 with 5 Ks is something to be proud of.

Tom Glavine is set to pitch the 2nd game for the Mets. LA will bring Hong-Chih Kuo.
