After falling behind early the Mets chipped away at the Reds and former Generation K member Paul Wilson (7-0, 3.17) to pull out an impressive 7-4 win at Shea last night. Matt Ginter didn’t have his best stuff and was pulled after 4 innings making way for spectacular relief appearances by John Franco and Mike Stanton (2 innings each) before Braden Looper closed it up with his 13th save. Hitting highlights included Mike Piazza hitting a homer to give the Mets a lead and Mike Cameron getting 3 hits.
Piazza’s homer tied him with Rocky Colavito for 55th place on the all time list with 374 and puts him just 2 homers behind Carlton Fisk (376).
Sean McAdam has a piece on ESPN.com this morning discussing managerial changes that could be coming in the league. Artie from Queens is mentioned in the list.
Jay Greenberg has a column in today’s New York Post discussing Mike Piazza moving between first base and catcher.
