Beating the Braves is Always Good

Mets 4 - Braves 1

Leaving for a week in Florida later this morning, but I couldn't miss noting a series win against Atlanta. Trust me, I know that September Met games are once again meaningless, but taking 2 of 3 from the Braves still has some meaning for the future. I fully expected, based on the last 3 weeks, to see the Braves take at least 2 of these games, continuing their dominance of the Mets.

It sure looked that way, too, as the Mets once again made John Thomson look like Cy Young, and little hemorrhoid Marcus Giles homered. But then, in a span of four pitches in the sixth: ball four to Reyes -- RBI double by Diaz -- RBI double by Beltran -- 2 run HR by Cliff -- the Mets had all the cushion Tom Glavine would need to take the series. It's a start, and a nice sign that the Mets haven't completely packed it in.

See you in a week.
