ANALYSIS: It’s not often you give up one hit and lose. That’s what happened to the Mets this afternoon. And, it wasn’t that they had a lot of opportunities to begin with. Roy Oswalt was that good. So was Orlando Hernandez, and that’s what the Mets are concerning themselves with this time of the year. “I trust him,” manager Willie Randolph said. With an uncertainty about Pedro Martinez, its a relief to have a reliable arm.
NOTES: Mets finished road trip at 4-2. … Carlos Delgado hit 35th homer of season and 404th of career. … Carlos Beltran still on for MRI tomorrow. He says he’ll be down two or three games. … Steve Trachsel vs. Braves lefthander Chuck James tomorrow night at Shea.
Talk with you then.
