Mets 9, Athletics 1

Tom Glavine earned his first victory since May 19 on Friday night against the A's. (Ed Betz/AP)


Mets:
Quote:
Making his sixth attempt at career win No. 296, Tom Glavine delivered, holding the A's to one run in eight-plus innings, pitching into the ninth for the first time since his last start of 2005. Carlos Beltran hit his second homer since May 13, and Glavine drove in two runs of his own.
Oakland A's:
Quote:
Shannon Stewart hit a game-tying homer in the second inning, but that was all the A's could enjoy on a night when two errors led to four unearned runs for starter Lenny DiNardo, who took his fourth loss. Rich Harden pitched the eighth, making his first appearance since April 15.

Notes: Pelfrey expected to make start
06/22/2007 8:15 PM ET
By Marty Noble / MLB.com

NEW YORK -- The Mets' rotation -- struggling of late, to say the least -- will add a sixth member for at least a day next week, and it will likely be the pitcher who struggled while the rest of the rotation was on a roll -- Mike Pelfrey.
The club has made no decision, but it did have Pelfrey's start with Triple-A New Orleans pushed forward from Thursday to Friday so that he would fit in the Mets' rotation next Friday, when the Mets will play a day-night doubleheader in Philadelphia.

General manager Omar Minaya said that Jason Vargas, who pitched six innings on Thursday, and Brian Lawrence, the former Padres pitcher whom the Mets signed as a free agent last month, are other candidates. But neither would be in line, as Pelfrey would be.

Pelfrey lost his only five decisions with the Mets -- he made six starts before his demotion on May 13 -- but he has pitched more effectively and successfully at Triple-A. Entering his start against Omaha on Friday night, he had a 2-1 record and a 2.87 ERA in six starts and 31 1/3 innings. He had allowed 30 hits, walked 11 and struck out 24.

Up, up and away: Entering Friday, the Mets were the only division leader without a winning record in home games -- they were 18-18 at Shea Stadium -- but they had the second-best road record in the National League (20-14) even after their 2-7 excursion to Detroit, Los Angeles and the Bronx.

The first ones now will later be last: Not only have the Mets scored the fewest run in the big leagues in the last month, their 92 runs in 26 games are 107 fewer runs than the Tigers have scored in 27 games. And the Mets were leading the NL in runs as recently as May 22.

If at first ... Carlos Delgado ranks third among NL first basemen in at-bats, 20th in slugging percntage (.401), 25th in batting average (.221), 27th in on-base percentage (.289), sixth in runs (34), fifth in RBIs and home runs (41 and 11, respectively) and third in strikeouts (61).

Odds are ... Someone with a computer and too much time has calculated this: For the chances to be better than 50-50 that two people in a group will have the same birthday, the group must include merely 22 people. The Mets' 25-man roster doesn't prove it, but it supports it -- twice. Aaron Sele and Delgado were born on June 25. Billy Wagner and Guillermo Mota were born on July 25. And if the group were increased to 26 and included Rickey Henderson, now with the club as an instructor, there would be a third set of birthday sharers. Henderson and Ruben Gotay were born on Christmas Day.

Revolting reversal: The Mets' starting pitchers had the lowest ERA in the big leagues (2.17) in a 15-game sequence that ended on June 8 with the team having won eight games. In the subsequent 11-game sequence, the starters produced the highest ERA in the big leagues (7.91) and a 2-9 record.



Complete coverage >
Indelibly: Mets batting coaching Rick Down asked outfielder Shawn Green how his leg was feeling when he noticed an ugly purple bruise on Green's right shin. He assumed that Green had fouled a pitch off his leg, and he had -- in 1998. The bruise is a memento of a foul ball he hit off Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte. It no longer hurts, but it looks nasty.

This date in Mets history -- June 23: Jimmy Piersall celebrated the 100th home run of his career by running the bases backward at the Polo Grounds on June 23, 1963. The pitcher at the time was a no-nonsense fella with the Phillies, Dallas Green, who found nothing amusing in Piersall's putting it in reverse. Piersall had been traded to the Mets for Gil Hodges a month earlier, but he was released on July 27. He and Green became friends years later, after Piersall had impressed Green as a Minor League outfield instructor with the Phillies.

The Mets killed The Vulture on June 23, 1970, beating Phil Regan and the Cubs, 12-10, in 10 innings at Wrigley Field on a two-run home run Duffy Dyer. Regan, who began his career as a starter with the Dodgers in 1960, moved to the bullpen in 1966 and to the Cubs two years later. As a reliever, he was known to give up leads and then earn victories when his team came back; hence the nickname "Vulture," which had morphed into a verb, used when any reliever squanders a lead and wins.

On June 23, 1984, Bruce Berenyi and Doug Sisk combined to pitch a three-hit shutout against the Expos at Shea. The Mets won, 2-0, with Danny Heep hitting home run.

Dwight Gooden pitched a two-hitter, and Darryl Strawberry hit a two-run home run in the Mets' 3-0 victory over the Phillies at Shea on June 23, 1990. The victory was the Mets' fifth in a sequence of 11 straight victories that put them in first place, three percentage points ahead of the Pirates, the eventual division champions.

Thirty-two years later: One of the few people in the ballpark the last time the A's played at Shea in 1975 -- other than Sandy Alomar, then with the Yankees -- was Mickey Morabito, then working for the Yankees' media relations department and is now the A's traveling secretary. His take on the place: "Hasn't changed much."

Coming up: The Mets will face left-hander Joe Kennedy and the A's on Saturday night at 7:10 p.m. ET. Orlando Hernandez, 0-2 in his last three starts, will start for the Mets

mets look to take 2 in a row and take a series here in june for the first time.

i was impressed by glavine last night. hopefully he pitches like he did last night for the rest of the season and the playoffs. i didnt get as excited as i usually do after this win because we won the past 2 fridays and now this one is 3 straight fridays and the previous two fridays, we lost on saturday and sunday. so, i will be very excited if we win later tonight (its 12:14 a.m. right now). lets win this series and go for the sweep tomorrow. LETS GO METS!!

Mets 1, Athletics 0

Orlando Hernandez went seven innings, allowing no runs on six hits and fanning seven. (Ed Betz/AP)


Mets:
Quote:
Ramon Castro wasn't even supposed to be in the game. But pressed into action after Paul Lo Duca's ejection, he doubled to start the ninth and scored the game-winner on David Wright's double. Orlando Hernandez tossed seven shutout frames in a no-decision.
A's:
Quote:
In two starts against the Mets, Joe Blanton has held them scoreless. That includes Saturday's eight-inning, five-K performance. But opponent Orlando Hernandez was equally effective, so when Santiago Casilla gave up his first run in 11 outings, that was all New York needed for the win.
