6:30 PM — Not too much to say. Zoilo Almonte says his ankle feels “very good” and he’s not sure how long he’ll be here. He said many other things as well. I’ll write that up after the game. Whee!
4:25 PM — Lineups are here, and Ben Gamel is on the bench for the Thunder one day after his walk-off hit won Game 1 for them.
B-Mets: Muno 2B, Rodriguez 3B, Hughes 1B, Dykstra DH, Vaughn LF, Taijeron RF, Ceciliani CF, Forsythe C, Tovar SS, Gorski P
Thunder: Flores LF, Almonte RF, Pirela 2B, Sanchez C, Austin DH, Roller 1B, Williams CF, Corona 3B, Castillo SS, O’Brien P
4:00 PM — Just when I thought I could solely focus on just a playoff game, a rehabber has arrived from the Bronx.
Zoilo Almonte, who played for the Thunder in 2011 and 2012, played in 26 games with the Yankees earlier this season, but sprained his left ankle on July 19 and has been out ever since.
I’ll have lineups for you later, but rest assured he’ll be in it somewhere.
