The wild card series wrapped up last night. All of them.
Every wild card series featured a two game sweep. The Phillies and Twins swept their opponents at home. The Diamondbacks swept them on the road. The Rangers technically swept on the road but there were some real attendance issues in St. Petersburg for the Rays.
But how did our old friends do?
Rangers vs Rays – No former Mets
Blue Jays vs Twins – No former Mets
Diamondbacks vs Brewers
- Tommy Pham 1-for-4, R, K
- Paul Sewald 1.0 IP, 2K (0.00 ERA, 2 Saves)
- Mark Canha 3-for-4
Marlins vs Phillies
- David Robertson 2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 K, HR
Mark Canha did (almost literally) all he could do to help the Brewers last night but miscues from the whole team piled up as the Diamondbacks rolled through. Paul Sewald has already pitched two shutout innings, closing both wins for the Diamondbacks this October.
David Robertson’s tumultuous tenure with the Marlins comes to an end. After being lights out for the Mets he struggled with the Marlins. It ends with the Phillies getting the best of him in a big game. Here’s hoping he can be that version of himself he was with the Mets this year again. Will the Mets consider bringing him back?
