The Mets got what they wanted out of John Maine. He went deeper into the game on fewer pitches and improved his record to 7-5. His line was:
Carlos Delgado hit his 11th home run off Aaron Cook in the Mets five run second inning. Trot Nixon also hit his first home run as a Met. Carlos Beltran was hitting screaming line drives all over the field tonight in a 3.for 5 effort.
The Mets absolutely look like they had an extra spring in their step tonight. It looks like the momentum from the 10th inning win in Los Angeles on Wednesday carried over to tonight’s game.
