Happy Recap: Mets 10 Rockies 5

Another mediocre start for Steve Trachsel in which he got run support, and a win. He's now 14-5, having won 12 of his last 13 decisions. He gave up 3 runs in 6 innings, dropping his ERA by 0.02 to 4.98. He is tied for the NL lead in wins, with the 36th best ERA.

Carlos Beltran got the Mets on the board in the first inning with his 40th home run.

David Wright followed that up with an RBI single. He was 3-4 in the game and continued to break out of his slump. He also had a 2-run triple which was misplayed by Brad Hawpe.

Hawpe also misplayed a ball hit by Delgado, giving him a triple, which drove in 2 in the 6th.

Jose Reyes continued his amazing season with his 16th home run and 68th RBI in the fourth inning.

The man who once displaced Reyes, and was subsequently booed out of town had a good game. Kaz Matsui singled, stole second and scored each of his first two times up. he doubled in the 9th inning and scored then too.

Chad Bradford pitched two good innings in relief. I love this picture of him.

Aaron Heilman gave up 2 meaningless runs in the 9th and has been so good lately I don't think we have the right to complain.

About him, or anything else right now for that matter. The Mets have won 10 of 11 since the diaster in Philadelphia.
