Guess what everyone - the snapped their four game losing streak yesterday and Tom Glavine won his first game since June 13th! Glavine gave up 2 runs in six innings in the 4-2 Mets victory (box score) and his ERA went up to 2.61 from 2.60.
Luckily for Glavine, the Mets had some offense last night. Mike Cameron hit his second home run of the two game series in the 6th inning. The three run shot off Zach Day proved to be the game-winning hit. Glavine's record is now back to .500 at 8-8, but the Mets are still three games below that mark.
Despite the win, the fielding follies continued for the Mets. In what seemed like a double play opportunity in the 2nd inning, Kaz Matsui committed his 21st error when he threw the ball over his intended target. David Wright, brought up to improve the defense on the left side, committed his third error in the majors.
Mike Piazza, who injured his wrist last week was ready to return yesterday, but Art Howe kept him out of the lineup. In Florida, Shane Spencer was stopped for driving under the influence. Spencer is in Florida recovering from stitches to his foot which he injured in a bar. The DUI is not Spencer's first run in with the law.
