John Maine was done 15 minutes into the rain delay, Willie Randolph said. He was terrific, giving up one hit in five scoreless innings. After the DH on Saturday, an added benefit was not having to use the bullpen.
-Lastings Milledge has 14 RBI in 18 games since he was activated from the minor league DL. He’s riding a nine-game hitting streak (.424, 14-for-33 in that span).
-The Mets drew 196,655 for the four-game Nationals series to set a club record.
-Today was the 31st one-hitter in franchise history.
-Today marked Maine’s second career shutout. It was the Mets’ ninth of the season.
The Mets are off tomorrow and are in Milwaukee Tuesday for Tom Glavine’s attempt at 300 wins.
