Matsuzaka gets save as Mets beat Cards
NEW YORK -- Catcher Anthony Recker wasn't surprised Thursday afternoon when right-handed pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka walked to home plate to retrieve his mask after Recker caught the final out of the New York Mets' 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field.
"'Oh, he's over there, picking up my mask,'" Recker recalled thinking to himself. "He's a nice guy. So I get it."
