Mets Shine In All-Star Game

Tom Singer at Mets.com, writes about the Mets All-Stars and how they did last night:

The trio of New Yorkers in the NL's starting lineup stood out like the Golden Gate through a fog blanket, with starters Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and David Wright collecting five of the NL's first six hits.

Beltran and Wright each went 1-for-3 before both left the game in the top of the seventh, but the star of All-Stars was Reyes, who went 3-for-4, stole a base and scored a run while playing longer than any of the other 15 starting position players.

"Oh, man, it was kind of an exciting game for me," said Reyes, who certainly made up for having to miss last year's game with a finger injury.

The final component of the Mets' All-Star quartet wasn't quite as smashing on the other end of the ball, as left-handed reliever Billy Wagner allowed a two-run homer to pinch-hitter Victor Martinez in his one inning of pitching, the eighth.
