Almost Out of the Cellar
A strong outing by Victor Zambrano and some good hitting by Mike Piazza pushed the Mets over the Phillies in last nights' game and got them closer to pulling themselves out of the basement in the NL East standings. The Mets' hitting stars, Mike Cameron, Carlos Beltran and Mike Piazza all had two hits, and Piazza drove in three runs.
Victor Zambrano had a strong outing as he went five innings. He gave up only one run and he struck out seven.
