Happy Recap: Mets 5 Pirates 0

A very strange game.

Mets get 5 runs on 4 hits in the first inning. Once again Reyes gets it started, with a triple. Jose Valentin and Endy Chavez once again delivered from the bottom of the lineup, driving in three runs. But those three hits, and Lo Duca's that drove in Reyes, were the only four the Mets would get all night.

They were no-hit for the last 7 innings of the game. But they had such a big lead it didn't really matter? Was it a good sign that they won, without hitting? Or a bad sign that maybe there are serious problems with the offense?

If there are problems El Duque masked them last night. His second straight excellent start he kept the aggressive Pirates hitters off balance.

Chad Bradford and Duaner Sanchez finished the game.

The win was the 50th of the season, the first NL team to reach that plateau this year.
