Nobody seems to be talking about losing nine straight to the Phillies anymore. Winning four in a row has a tendency to do that. The Mets have won eight of their last ten games.
Looking at yesterday, the important thing for me was Aaron Heilman. You never want to let a team think it owns you, which is close to what was happening with him and the Phillies in this park.
Oliver Perez pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings, but he always walked five and gave up four hits. Yes, pitched out of trouble which is a good sign, but there was an uneasy feeling. It’s always going to be that way with him.
David Wright and Ryan Church are hot, and Jose Reyes is getting on a roll. We’re still waiting for Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran to break out.
