Unhappy Recap: Cubs 9 Mets 2

It was a tale of two games.

Juan Pierre led off the first inning with an infield single. That was the only hit by either side for the first 5 innings.

Valentin led off the 5th with a triple. Delgado singled him home, then Chavez singled home Beltran who had reached on a walk. Mets led 2-0, then completely fell apart.

Endy Chavez misplayed or lost in the sun a fly ball turning it into a triple. Glavine walked Derrek Lee and gave up a single to Aramis Ramirez. That was all for Glavine.

Chad Bradford came in and got the ground ball that was needed but it was only turned into a fielder's choice. Three hits later Bradford was out of the game and the score was 5-2.

Henry Owens couldn't get anyone out in the 8th, and that turned into 4 more runs. And that was that.

And that was that for Henry Owens too. He was sent back to Binghamton after the game (and he doesn't even live there). Heath Bell was called up.

Glavine lost for the first time in 14 starts (best since David Cone in 1989) and first time since April 24. He still can't get that 12th victory.
