Bernie Williams leads off the fourth. So far, the only two Yankees to lead off an inning have been Johnny Damon and Bernie Williams. That's strange. What the heck? How does that happen? It pops up in the infield, three people are around hte ball, and nobody gets it? The wind makes it difficult, but how does that happen? Bernie actually took second on an infield popup. Ugh. That's terrible. Bernie gets his second double of the game. Melky Cabrera is up, trying to drive that first Yankee run in. He doesn't, grounding out to Tom Glavine for the first out. Man, I still can't believe that pop up turned into a double for Bernie. Seriously, how does that happen? Kelly Stinnett up for the second time. Glavine pitching Stinnett tentatively. Why, he's Kelly Stinnett? He stunk ten years ago in his "prime." Stinnett draws a walk, two on and one out for Small. I'm guessing we see a bunt here. Sure enough, he bunts the two runners over for the second out. Damon up, which means that the Yankees will have a new leadoff hitter for the first time in the game in the fifth. Can the Mets get him to strand the two runners in scoring position?
Well, he got hit. So he doesn't score them, but he doesn't strand them either. Uh oh, Jeter's up. This normally isn't good. Jeter has been cold so far, he almost seems due...I'll be honest, I'm a little worried. Dammit, a ground ball that could have ended the inning gets away from David Wright. It was a hard hop, Brooks Robinson would have had trouble with that one, but it costs the Mets two runs. 2-0 Yankees, Jason Giambi up. He walks, bringing up A-Rod with the bases loaded. Tom Glavine has not had his best stuff all game. This is bad, we needed Glavine's A-game in this game, and he just doesn't have it tonight. He flies out to Cliff Floyd to end the inning. If the Mets had caught that easy pop-up from Bernie, they'd have gotten out of that inning without a run. But they didn't, and they allowed two, and the Yankees draw first blood.
