Two won, two lost

In Coors Field, a hitters' ballpark, the Rockies did and the Mets didn't. Starter Tom Glavine lost his sixth of the season as he inched closer to the .500 mark. In six innings he yielded nine hits, six runs, and five walks. Seemed like he was having trouble finding the plate. Of his 112 pitches, only 61 were strikes. On the positive side, if it weren't for one "Rockie" inning, the third, Glavine wouldn't have given up a run. And there was another positive. Joe Smith pitched the last two innings and limited the Rockies to one walk and no hits.

One level down, the Zephyrs won, 3-2, but starter David Williams didn't get the win though he gave up only only three hits and two runs in seven innings. Given the Mets current pitching problems, Williams might soon be joining the big team.

The B-Mets lost 5-3, Kevin Mulvey absorbing the loss.

And in Aberdeen land, wherever that is, the Brooklyn Cyclones scored four in the top of the tenth to finish off the Ironbirds 6-3 though no Cyclones pitcher pitched even four innings. Hittingwise, Jacob Eigsti led the Cyclones with three while playing three positions in the game: 3B, 1B, and SS. Eigsti was the Mets' 29th round pick in the 2006 draft.
