Another win and only one suspect area

The Mets rolled again today, with the usual suspects performing well. Jose Reyes tripled to drive in two. Delgado cracked a home run, and newcomer Argenis Reyes hit his first major league homer (a solo shot in the eighth) and drove in another run earlier, with a two-out, two-strike single. The Mets dugout gave Reyes a brief silent

The only suspect area remains the Mets bullpen. Almost everyone except Joe Smith looks like an easybeat, or at least hittable. Joe Smith pitched the eighth and gave up a double and a walk, but worked out of trouble. In the ninth, Duaner Sanchez gave up 2 singles and a walk to load the bases. Aaron Heilman came in and got out of it with only 1 run scoring, so perhaps I'm being harsh on the pen. Only Sanchez was miserable.

Over in Georgia, I was pleased to see the Braves score 7 runs in the top of the ninth to pummel the Phillies 8-2. So the Mets are 2 games in first now!
