Orlando Hernandez's line from Game 3:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 5.0 5 3 3 3 7 1 101-63 49Though not against the stiffest competition, El Duque's first start with the Mets was certainly promising. He worked a lot of deep counts, seemingly going 3-2 on every batter he faced. He walked three, two of which came around to score on Jeremy Hermida's homerun. The seven strikeouts are nice, but again, he needs to be able to put away hitters earlier in the count if he is to last beyond the fifth inning.
