Mets and Pedro Handle Phillies
When Pedro Martinez takes the mound, you expect the Mets to win. This afternoon, he went six innings and did just that as he earned his ninth win of the season. He gave up two runs on five hits and two walks.
Jose Reyes drove in two runs with a triple in the fourth. It was ninth triple of the season, which leads the National League. And with ten walks, he's once again close to having the same amount of triples as he does walks.
Chris Woodward drove in two runs and both Cliff Floyd and Carlos Beltran stole two bases. For Beltran, it was only his second and third of the season.
Another big series this weekend, as the Mets host the Marlins. Any game against a division opponent, when the division race is this tight, is an important one.
