New York Mets News of the Day

I wasn't at today's game but saw most of it on TV.  It would have been a shame for the Mets to have been swept by the Bronx Bombers at Citifield, but the lucky breaks went for the Amazins.  It is very rare for Mariano Rivera to blow a save, but Ronny Paulino hit a game tying single in the 9th inning.  The Mets loaded the bases in the 9th inning on an error by backup shortstop Ramiro Pena (his second in two innings).  Jason Bay then hit a single to win the game for the Mets.

Game recap

Jose Reyes was diagnosed with a grade 1 strain of his hamstring and could return as early as Tuesday.  General Manager Sandy Alderson said that it would be a day to day decision as to when Reyes would return to the lineup.

Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran made the National League All-Star team.
