Kris Benson went to work against the team that let him go late last season, and he continues to be a steady force in the Mets pitching rotation.
Sorry I'm not giving alot of detail on tonight's game, it was a long day for my family. Dan had his knee surgery today, and although it went very well the poor guy in in excrutiating pain, so I was at the hospital with him most of the day and the evening.
I know Cliff Floyd hit another moon shot tonight-his 27th of the year, Miguel Cairo had a walk and a double, and Jose Reyes got his 18th walk of the season and his 42nd stolen base tonight. Even Braden Loop-hole was able to hold on to a 4 run lead tonight.
I do have on question for Willie Ran-DOOF though- why onearth did he pinch hit Matsui with 2 on when he could have taken a chance with Ramon Castro who is right handed? Matsui flied out to right field to a chorus of Boos from the crowd at Shea. Please Willie-enough with Matsui already. I'd rather take a chance with Marlon Anderson hitting against a lefty (If I believed in that crap) than Matsui.
