Happy Recap: Mets 2 Cardinals 0

A pretty boring game to write about but the Mets got a break from the bad weather.

rain may have saved the Mets

In the first inning Paul LoDuca ripped a single past the shortstop into leftfield and then David Wright blasted his 13th home run to left center. The Mets got no more hits. That was it.

But that was all they needed. The Cardinals got only one hit, Scott Rolen ripped one down the third base line, Wright made a great play to stop it but he had no chance to get Rolen at first.

Glavine's road to 297 was a lot easier than trying to get 296.

This was the second one-hitter of his career, they both came with the Mets. This counts as a complete game shutout, but had it been a no-hitter, it wouldn't have counted. A rule change several years back said no-hitters must go 9 innings.

Carlos Gomez made two really nice catches to help Glavine. The better one came against Encarnacion has he was falling back into the wall.

Anthony Reyes is 0-10 this season.

The 5 1/2 innings that were actually played took only 1 hour and 25 minutes.
