Happy Recap: Mets 4 Dodgers 3

Another great starting pitching performance, this time from El Duque. The Mets sorely need the starters to go 7 innings. El Duque did give the Mets seven strong but with two outs and none on in 7th he allowed back to back home runs to Luis Gonzalez and Russell Martin.

Carlos Delgado got a huge hit in this game that will hopefully be a turning point for him. After making the third out of an inning twice, stranding 5 baserunners, he got up with the bases loaded and two outs in his third at bat. Instead of booing the crowd gave him a standing O and he delivered a single on the first pitch to make the score 3-0.

The Mets tacked on an insurance run which they needed after Milledge butchered a ball that he should have let fall in front of him for a single, turning it into a triple.

But that run didn't matter as Aaron Heilman came in to get his first save of the season.

If Wagner is going through a tired arm period then why did Willie bring him in on Friday with a 4-run lead? I'm worried that Willie is overusing his pen.
