Maine Masterful as Mets Sweep Double Dip

John Maine, you're going to the All-Star Game! What a beautiful game Maine pitched tonight, against a very good hitting team in tiny ballpark. You now get the feeling - confidence - the Mets are going to win every time Maine goes out there. He has been so good all year and the Mets go on to sweep a double-header from the Phils.

The Mets bats got the job done today as well. Homers by Delgado and Reyes in the first game, Beltran with two shots of his own in the second. Easley added a two run jack to provide some breathing room for Maine, who won his 9th game of the season. The offense looked like the offense of old as they worked the pitchers all day. Cole Hammels threw 111 pitches through 5 innings. Wagner was lights out to save the 1st and came on to close out a nerve-racking 9th in the second game.
How funny was the bubble gum cup on Ramon Castro's hat, placed perferctly by David Wright? Good to see the comraderie is still there.

Kudos to Phillies right fielder, Bourn, who made two great catches, including a miraculous grab robbing Beltran of extra bases and two RBI.

The Mets are back!
