Happy Recap: Mets 6 Cardinals 2

7 in a row. 11 in a row at home, tying a team record.
The three pitchers who pitched last night (Dave Williams, Roberto Hernandez and Guillermo Mota) all joined the team in the last month.

Williams pitched very well on against the Rockies his last time out until Hernandez allowed a 3-run homer with two of Williams' inherited runners on base.
This time Hernandez relieved Williams in the 7th with second and third and one out, but he stranded the runners.

The Mets took a 3-0 lead in the third with the help of a Lo Duca triple, a couple walks, a sac fly by Wright and the first of (hopefully) many RBI for Shawn Green in a Met uniform.

Gary Bennett cut the lead to 1 with a 2 run homer in the 5th off Williams.

Carlos Delgado got that right back in the bottom of the inning with his 32nd homer of the year (also a 2-run shot).

Delgado Del-got another one

The Mets tacked on one more in the 8th, on Reyes' 66th RBI. If he continues on this pace, he could get close to 90 RBI.

Mota looked great in the 9th inning.
