Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero had 3 doubles in 4 at bats, driving in 2 runs and scoring 2 runs to lead the home team to victory over the visiting New York Mets.Â Met fans in need of a stiff drink need to enlist a designated driver and hop into their Mitsubishi Montero and head out to Montero’s Bar & Grill.
If you can’t find a Mitsubishi Montero an appropriate substitute to get you to Montero’s Bar & Grill is a Mercury Montego.Â Even a Chevy Monte Carlo is OK.Â Any car will do really, just make sure to get that drink.
The Diamondbacks took the early lead in the 2nd inning on a (surprise) RBI double by Montero which plated Mark Reynolds.Â Montero and Augie Ojeda scored on a low line drive to centerfield by Arizona starting pitcher Doug Davis which was misplayed by Angel Pagan into a 2-run double giving the D’Backs the 3-0 lead.
In the bottom of the 3rd Chad Tracy singled in (guess who) Montero and Arizona was up 4-0.Â The Mets got 2 back in the top of the 4th when a Fernando Tatis triple scored Luis Castillo and David Wright.Â In the 5th Tracy drove in Reynolds and it was 5-2 Arizona.Â In the 7th rookie Trent Oeltjen hit his 3rd homer, a solo shot, and Montero wrapped up his desert storm with an RBI double to make it 7-2 D’Backs.
The Mets made the final score look a little better in the paper tomorrow in the 9th when Anderson Hernandez doubled in Daniel Murphy and then scored on a single by Pagan to bring about the final score of 7-4.
