Mets Drop Series to Astros

This one was tough. We had the hammer, but we couldn't use it to walk away with a win. And a solid start by Tom Glavine (his third straight good start) went to waste. Heath Bell gave up four hits and three runs in the eleventh to earn his third loss of the season.

David Wright hit his tenth homer of the season, and he drove in two. Carlos Beltran had three hits but he made his second error of the season.

So, the standings shuffle once again. Philadelphia has moved into second with a nice run, and the Mets are tied for third with the Braves at 2 1/2 games back. The Marlins then sit a game behind the two of them.

I still haven't seen anything about the Mets inking Danny Graves. While he struggled at Cincinnati this year, I'm hoping a change of scenery will do him good.
