Game 22: Win

Mets 5 Braves 2

This story is getting old: Pedro Martinez throws a masterpiece, David Wright hits a couple homeruns, Billy Wagner comes in to save the game.

I like old stories.

The best part of this story? It was against the Braves. Maybe this IS the year the Braves finally relinquish first place, after all.
