Big Comeback Ends Mets Skid

well, the Mets avoided a sweep and they also ended their three game skid with a monster seven run fifth inning. Carlos Beltran had the big blast with a three run shot. Mike Piazza homered in the seventh and Brian Daubach made his 2005 debut by going 0 for 1 with three walks and two runs scored.

Kris Benson threw six quality innings. He gave up three runs on seven hits. Oddly enough, his stat line included two homers and three walks, but not a single strikeout.

Danny Graves made his Mets debut, and he got started right where he left off for the Reds. He gave up three runs on four hits in an inning of work.

The Mets are still in last, and they're six games back. They picked a bad time to go into a skid, as the Nationals have still been red hot. They now have a three game lead over the second place Phillies. It wasn't that long ago that a game and a half seperated first and fifth place.
