Mets Game 78: Win Over Yankees
Mets 15 Yankees 6
Wow. Where to start?
Carlos “MetsToday Can Kiss My Butt” Delgado virtually doubled his run production for the month of June in one day, driving in a club-record 9 runs on three hits, including a double, a three-run homer, and a grand slam. That was more than the Mets would need, but David Wright and Carlos Beltran combined for another 6 RBI. Beltran scored four runs and Luis Castillo crossed the plate five times.
The lengthy lead was helpful to Mike Pelfrey, who struggled in nearly all of his five innings, allowing 8 hits, 4 walks, 4 earned runs and striking out 5. Pedro Feliciano, Aaron Heilman, and Carlos Muniz finished up the last four innings.
Wright was 4-for-5, all singles. Beltran also hit a homerun, his 12th of the year.
Heilman was the only pitcher on either team who did not give up a run; he worked one inning.
