Mets 2 - Reds 1
Played Saturday, July 14, 2007
No one can accuse Tom Glavine of backing into 300 wins. The Mets seem determined to make him earn each one. This one took 8 innings of 2-hit ball and a 2-out RBI from Lastings Milledge in the bottom of the eighth for Tommy to move within 2 wins of baseball immortality.
After allowing a solo homer to Brandon Phillips in the second, Glavine completely shut down the Reds attack. Meanwhile, the Mets kept putting Reds starter Matt Belisle in jeopardy but letting him off the hook. It wasn't until the sixth inning that Shawn Green's soft 2-out single evened the game and got Glavine off the hook for a loss. Thank goodness Milledge came through and got Glavine a much-deserved win.

Not much to say about the offense. The failure to get the big hit is still a big problem for this team. Two runs on 11 hits pretty much says it all.
Wagner was throwing BBs up there in the ninth inning as he picked up save number 19 on the season.
