Yesterday, the Mets lost two games, 1-0 (box score) and 6-1 (box score). In game 1, Aaron Heilman pitched the best game of his career, giving up only two hits in seven innings. Unfortunately, one of the hits was a solo home run by Humberto Cota. In game two of doubleheader, Kris Benson made a less than stellar return to Pittsburgh, giving up six runs and six hits in six innings.

Todd Zeile certainly had a memorable weekend. In game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader, he picked up the 2,000th hit of his career. The hit came in the 9th inning and off of Pirates closer Jose Mesa. In Saturday's game, Zeile played catcher for the first time since 1990. It's possible that Zeile is a bit rusty, as his batterymate, Tom Glavine, pitched poorly, giving up six runs in less than six innings of work.
