The two-headed Redding-Williams monster appeared again today. This time, Jerome was much better. (Remember he gave up four runs in two innings against Atlanta earlier in the week.)
Williams started the fourth and gave up a two-out homer to Jose Valentin. He gave up a single and then a double to David Newhan in the fifth, but Ben Johnson was gunned down trying to score on the double on a relay throw by Felipe Lopez. And Williams then worked a 1-2-3 sixth, albeit with help from an oustanding backhand play by Zimmerman at third.
Williams's line: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, I ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Talked to Redding a bit ago. "I'll be fine," was his basic theme. Said he felt better than last outing. He is, however, well aware that the results don't show that. Said he thought he threw two good breaking balls on the homers Johnson and Newhan hit.
In the middle of the seventh, Mets lead 6-1. Lastings Milledge with a solo homer off Arnie Munoz for the Mets, Brian Schneider with an RBI double for the Nationals. And the Mets' seventh ended with Nook Logan going back on a ball hit by Ruben Sierra. Half of Logan's body disappeared over the fence, it seemed, but he brought the ball back. A truly outstanding play.
If the guy can hit. If the guy can hit.
