    The Mets have a pulse.

    Delgado homers, but Beltran deserves a big assist.

    As FCB noted, Thompson was showing good stuff when he first came out. The error didn't shake him too much, but Beltran showed some crazy bat speed getting around on a ball that should have splintered his bat handle.

    Thompson suddenly got timid on Delgado, went down 2-0 and then served up a gopherball.

    Still, if Perez doesn't go six innings, the Cards will win this one.

    Yeah, but it wasn't a bad pitch, IMO. Delgado went down and got it and took it the other way. It was a great piece of hitting.

    Delgado doubles in 2 runs. 5 RBIs in the last 2 innings for Delgado. 7-3 Mets.

    Hancock gives up 3 hits and 2 walks without even getting an out.

    Mets hitters are doing a great job of hitting it where it's pitched.

    Agreed, but I think he had the luxury of looking for a fastball outside on the 2-0 count and I only think Thompson went 2-0 there because Beltran put him into a temporary state of shock.

    Though in general the Mets can hit good pitches. Did you see Shawn Green's hands on the flair single he just got? Beautiful piece of hitting.

    Yeah, several of the Mets have stayed patient and not tried to pull the ball and came up big.

    Credit the Mets...they were supposed to make EASY WORK of the Cardinals...after losing the last two games they could have really been left drifting...not tonight.

    The Mets have kind of made a habit of taking two steps forward after each step back this season.

    Meanwhile Iggy Pop has turned David Bowie into a pack of cigarettes, at least that's what's up on this week's Venture Brothers.
