Happy Recap: Mets 11 Rockies 3

The 11th happy one in my last 12 recaps. This one was a laugher from the first inning and gave the Mets the best record in baseball.

Seems like the thin air (or the rainout Sunday) finally broke David Wright out of his slump, which was not induced by the Home Run Derby. He was 6-44 in the 13 games before coming to Colorado. In the last two games he is 5-9 with 8 RBI.
After Reyes grounded out in the first the next three men reached base and Wright drove them all home with a grand slam.

In the second inning he drove home another run with a single. And in the 6th inning he fouled a ball off his foot. I thought the picture was funny.

Carlos Beltran scored a run for the 12th straight game. A Mets record.

Jose Valentin hit 2 home runs giving him 14. An amazing season for him.

Carlos Delgado also homered.

Dave Williams pitched 7 good innings, and had 2 hits.
