Turn Out the Lights...

Mets 10 - Nationals 4 (6)
The game ended prematurely in the top of the seventh when some of the stadium lights cut out in St. Lucie, but it was a good night for the Mets offense nonetheless. Xavier Nady went 3 for 3, including a monster home run. Kaz Matsui, slumping for most of the spring, had a couple of hits and drove in 3 runs. Tike Redman added a pair of hits and Julio Franco drove in 3 with a double.

Tom Glavine started for the Mets and was not impressive. In 4 innings, he got touched up for 4 runs on 6 hits -- 2 of them home runs. He was quoted, however, that he wasn't terribly disappointed in his performance:

I'm actually pretty happy with it, other than the results. The results weren't very good. I worked on most of the stuff I wanted to work on, and physically I was better than the last time. As far as keeping the ball down, I was a lot better than the last time.


Yusaku Iriki followed Glavine and pitched 2 hitless, scoreless innings, striking out 3 and walking one.

The Mets will play tomorrow afternoon at home again against the Orioles. Brian Bannister, who has opened eyes this spring, will start for the Mets, facing Erik Bedard. Chad Bradford and Bartolome Fortunato will follow for the Mets.
