Game Recap:: Mets 6 -- Astros 2

All I have to say is...JOHN MAINE IS THE GREATEST!

John Maine! Wow! The Mets snapped the losing streak, beating the Astros by a score of 6-2. John Maine carried the team, throwing 7 and 2/3 of an inning, only allowing 2 earned runs on 6 hits. Maine walked 2 batters and struck out 9! He had seven K's through only three innings!

...this kid has been so dominant...
...tonights game was very reminiscent of Maine's first start...the complete game against the Astros...he's come so far, and now he is so good...


Joe Smith and Pedro Feliciano combined to finish out the 8th inning. Smith allowed an inherited runner to score. Feliciano struck out the last batter of the 8th.

Billy Wagner struck out 2 batters, and walked one, in a non save situation in the 9th inning.

...beautiful bullpen work...

Jose Reyes went 1-4 with a walk and a stolen base. Reyes picked up a triple with his only hit.

...i love watching him fly...

Ricky Ledee had a big night, going 2-4, and picking up 2 RBI's!

...surprising to see from Ledee...
...who will get the starts in left? platoon Newhan and Ledee? what do you think??...


Carlos Beltran had a strange night, striking out 3 times, but also knocking a solo shot in the top of the 9th inning.

Carlos Delgado had an amazing night at the plate, going 4-4 with a walk. Delgy drove in a run in the first, and also scored one in the third.

...he's getting hottttttttttttttttt!!!...

Shawn Green went 2-4 at the plate tonight, while Ramon Castro, who is filling in for the now suspended Paul Lo Duca, went 3-4, driving in 2 RBI's.

...lovin' the big guy!...

Game Ball:: John Maine beats out Ledee and Castro! Great game from all!!
