Happy Recap: Mets 5 Dodgers 2

A great performance by Oliver Perez, he worked out of trouble in the first and in several subsequent innings but he held the Dodgers down for 7 much needed innings. His velocity seemed better than in his past few starts but his control was off, 5 walks allowed.

Reyes produced the first two runs with a walk and a steal in the first and a double in the third, scoring on hits from Gotay and Wright. Wright also added a solo homer.

The bullpen tried to blow it, Sosa loading the bases in the 8th and Wagner loading them in the 9th, but each time the Mets got out of it allowing only one run.

Luckily the offense added two insurance runs in the top of the 9th on a big hit by Milledge who had struck out 7 times in a row a streak that ended earlier in this game.

12 straight games of 5 runs or more, the Mets have won 2/3 of those games (8-4).
