Mets Top Randy Johnson Behind Big Games By Kris Benson and Jose Reyes

It's always nice to see your team get a win against one of the best starters to ever take the mound. The Mets got on the board early with a two run single by Jose Reyes and never looked back. Reyes ended up having a huge game, going three for four with a triple and four RBIs.

Kris Benson held the Yankees in check by pitching six shutout innings. He even plunked Derek Jeter in the elbow that forced him to leave the game.

In probably one of the funnier parts of the game, Dae-Sung Woo got his first career hit off of none other then the Big Unit. He doubled and eventually scored on a Jose Reyes bunt/delayed squeeze play. Jorge Posada fielded the bunt, and got Reyes at first, but didn't get back to cover home, so Woo scored.

The rubber game is this afternoon. The downer to interleague play is the division leading Marlins have a much easier Tampa team to contend with, while the Braves get the Red Sox and we get the Yankees.
