Happy Recap: Mets 6 Rockies 3

Steve Trachsel once again proves that on this team you don't have to pitch well, you only need to pitch well enough to win. He went 7 innings (good for the bullpen) and had only one bad inning, the fourth when he allowed 3 runs, including a 2 run homer by Garrett Atkins.

On a night when Reyes and Lo Duca went only 1-10 Beltran and Delgado set the table, and the rest of the lineup cleared it.

Beltran reached base the first four times he was up. In the third and the fifth, Delgado reached right after him, and both times Wright drove Beltran home.

In the fifth Tucker and Woodward also drove home runs.

The always exciting Endy Chavez, hit a 2 run homer in the fourth to give the Mets their other two runs.

Bradford got the 8th inning in this game and handled it well.

Wagner got the save, and after allowing a single to the first batter he struck out the next two.

Byung-Hyun Kim and Jose Mesa (affectionately known as Bung-hole and Joe Table) pitched for the Rockies.
