Mets 72-48 after 120 played

Delgado_1After three bad days in Philly, the Mets finally had a good one Thursday, riding a slump-busting performance by Carlos Delgado and another good start by John Maine to an easy 7-2 win.

Lost opportunities the first three games of the series, for sure, but at least the magic number is shrinking again, now standing at …

30.

That’s over the Phils with 42 to play. The Mets’ .600 winning percentage translates to about 97 wins on the year. The Braves’ tragic number to end that damned division-winning streak is 27. Good stuff.
