Mets 9 A's 1

The Mets had the total package on display tonight. Glavine was flawless. Beltran and Green hit bombs. Reyes was Reyes. And behind some stellar defensive play, the Mets cruised to a 9-1 victory over the Oakland A’s to take the first of three games.

It was nice to see Tom Glavine get back to form as he pitched a beautiful game for his 296th win. He also had two hits including a double and 2 RBI. It was great to see Jose Reyes having some fun shadow boxing in the dugout while Beltran, Gotay and Sosa looked on. It’s been a while since we’ve seen this kind of banter and it was a welcomed sight.

I guess the only negative of the night was Randolph pulling Glavine in the 9th after allowing a hit on his first pitch. I guess he wanted to get him a standing ovation as he walked off the mound, but the crowd wasn’t too pleased. They wanted a complete game.

Be that as it may, it was a nice all-around victory. Let’s get another one tomorrow to make it two in a row for the first time in three eeks.

Fantastic game to be at and great to see Glavine in cotrol both on the mound and at the plate. Beltran's home must have gone 500 feet.

Let's see if we'll run out of runs tomorrow.
