Happy Recap: Mets 4 Astros 2

Another good performance from John Maine and the Mets continue to win when he pitches.
He gave up two solo home runs (the only hits he allowed in 6 1/3 innings, to earn his 5th win. The Mets have won his last 8 starts.

The Mets were able score some runs thanks to shoddy defense by the Astros.

Cliff Floyd had a couple big hits and Wright got his 106th RBI.

But the key play came in the 9th when Billy Wagner came on and allowed to runners.
Lance Berkman smashed a drive to center and Beltran made a sliding catch, but slammed into the wall and hurt his knee.

That's the one thing the Mets did not want to have happen in September. If the ball had dropped in and tied the game (which it would have) that would be a better result than Beltran getting hurt.
