In The Red

A good game, for sure today. A lot of nerve wracking, but the contest was decided so well in the last innings. Robinson Cancel had his - yes, you are reading this correctly - his first extra base hit since 1999, and after the hustle and the insurance runs in the ends, I feel like partying like its 1999.

Kudos to Jose Reyes for recording his 63rd Career triple with the Mets and that put him in first on the all time list. While I don't have the stats in front of me, I'm sure he got to most of the milestone numbers before any of the other Mets.

Wagner was simply lights out. 3Ks. What more can one ask from a closer?

Back tomorrow. We are commandeering the lead against the team 90 or so miles south of Shea.
