Reitsma pitched the 8th and Adam Bernero pitched the 9th...anyone know why Reitsma was in the 8th?

Because he's a relief pitcher and they can use him any time they want? It wasn't a save situation, if that's what you are getting at. Kolb is still the closer. The only antsy people in this situation are the fantasy baseball owners who want a free closer.

Reitsma's not the closer (yet at least), but that was an impressive outing. Bases out. He throws a first pitch curveball over the plate but Perez lets it pass because he thought it was going to be a fastball. Piazza scores, Floyd to third, but Wright doesn't go to second (baserunning blunder that ended up costing them). Mientkiewicz consequently lines out to right...Floyd was stupid enough to not tag up, costing the Mets a run. So there's men on the corners for Victor Diaz, and he GIDPs to end the inning. Sure, it doesn't show up as a save in the statbook, but the Mets had a very good chance to make it at least an 8-6 game. I bet Bobby's confidence in Reitsma has gone up even more after this outing.
