And, the hits keep on coming …
GM Omar Minaya said Moises Alou had a CT scan that “showed something.’’ That something, Minaya said, could be a fracture. He’ll be in NY tomorrow for a MRI. A show of hands from anybody not surprised by this.
And Brian Schneider will be in the hospital another day.
And, finally, the hits kept coming in the game, too. The Mets scored in five innings to beat the Braves.
IN A NUTSHELL, Mets 6, Atlanta 3
Two games in a row the offense has clicked.
IN THE CLUBHOUSE
Willie Randolph on Carlos Delgado: “I said he’ll have a good year. Hopefully, this is a start for him.’’
Ryan Church on his catch against the wall: “I felt I had a chance for it. It was up there high enough.’’
Carlos Delgado on not taking a curtain call: “I have a great deal of respect for the game. I didn’t think it was the right situation for it.’’
1ST INNING: Jose Reyes doubles and took third on a grounder. That put him in position to score on a wild pitch. We’ve been waiting for that Reyes. Mets 1, Atlanta 0.
2ND INNING: Raul Casanova homers, but they miss a chance to break the game open when David Wright leaves the bases loaded. Mets 3, Atlanta 0.
3RD INNING: Carlos Delgado is loved again … at least for one more day. Mets 4, Atlanta 0.
6TH INNING: They stick with Nelson Figueroa too long, but Wright gets a run back. Mets 5, Atlanta 3.
9TH INNING: Billy Wagner gets his sixth save. Mets 6, Atlanta 3.
-Alou will have exam tomorrow to see if he has fracture in left ankle.
-Schneider is to be released from hospital tomorrow.
-Closer Billy Wagner gave up his first his of the season.
