Wow! What a night for Nola? Playoff Nola has been everything advertised so far. Question is... do they bring him out for the start of the 7th? Donovan, Yepez and Dickerson? If not, who do they bring in.
I trust Nola for one more inning more than I trust our bullpen for 3 innings

Jean Segura out on a sacrifice bunt, third baseman Nolan Arenado to second baseman Brendan Donovan. Brandon Marsh to 3rd.
His per inning/times through the order splits terrify me. I might bring him out for the start but be ready to pull him quickly. I'm not the manager though and I trust Thomson. Great bunt by Jean, very nearly beat it out.
not sure what happens from here, but I would think Nola should have exorcized a lot of the negative thoughts that we have seen on this site.gm
Please, get it out of the infield, Stott.

Man the Mets game is grinding. They started an hour ahead of us and we’ve almost caught up.

Good chances to score more in each of the last two innings. Now again this inning. Need to score but fail again. Three innings with RISP left on base.
I don’t think he went there. Cardinals have gotten some calls these past couple innings but we’ve also come up short.
Montgomery lived dangerously but we did not make him pay.
