CHASE UTLEY YOU ARE THE MAN!
Since sliding into Ruben Tejada and breaking his leg in last seasons National League Playoffs Chase Utley has been public enemy number one in New York.
In his return to Citi Field, where he has consistently dominated the New York Mets, Chase Utley was greeted just how you’d expect.
In his second at bat of the night, Noah Syndergaard threw behind one of the greatest human beings to ever wear a Phillies uniform. That pitch led to Syndergaards’ immediate ejection by home plate umpire Adam Hamari.
Mets manager Terry Collins also ejected when he burst out of the Mets dugout and got in the face of Hamari over ejecting his star pitcher in the third inning.
In his next at bat, Chase did what Chase does.
That made it 1-0 Dodgers in the top of the sixth inning.
Chase got another opportunity after Antonio Bastardo loaded the bases for him in the seventh inning.
Take one guess what he did…
The Man made it 6-0.
As of the bottom of the eighth, Chase Utley was 2-5 in the leadoff spot with two home runs and five RBIs. He’s hitting .296 for the Dodgers this season.
Chase Utley. You are the Man
