Update from Kevin at Shea:
We’re through five innings here at Shea Stadium and the Mets and Rockies are scoreless.
David Wright finally got a hit, lofting a single to right to end an 0 for 15 skid (8 Ks). That first HR isn’t too far behind. I can just feel it.
El Duque has looked pretty sharp so far, striking out four and giving up just three hits. Aaron Cook has matched him thanks to a pair of double plays and by escaping from a leadoff triple by Jose Valentin in the fourth.
Not much else going on. Hopefully somebody scores a run at some point or we’ll be here for a while.
