Happy Recap: Mets 7 Marlins 2

The Mets started the game with an early run after Endy Chavez tripled and Beltran drove him in with a sac fly, an area of the game in which Beltran has been very deficient.

The Mets could have had more in the second inning. After loading the bases with none out, Gomez drove in a run with a ground out. Bad, he was probably safe on the play. Worse, he hurt himself and had to come out of the game. Maine struck out and Reyes flied out to end the threat.

Gomez gets hurt, hopefully it isn't too serious

A walk turned into a run for the Marlins in the second.

Finally, Carlos Delgado hit a home run. To left center field. With a man on. We can only hope this is the start of something big for him.

If not maybe his homer in the 6th inning, a 3-run shot to straight away center will be the one that gets him going.

Gary Cohen said "the monster's out of the cage," which of course is what John Stearns once said to Mike Piazza after a big home run.

Maine struck out the side in the 3rd and 4th, then got in and out of trouble in the 5th and 6th and with the big lead that was all for him. 8 strikeouts and 4 walks. And a win.

Burgos pitched two good innings in relief.
