Beltran In, Piazza Out

Click here for a recap of last night’s game.

As one player returned from an injury another player was forced to take some time off because of one. Carlos Beltran returned to the lineup and went 1 for 2 with 2 walks. But then it was revealed that Mike Piazza will need at least a few days off after suffering a fracture in his left hand on Tuesday night. Though it is unknown exactly how much time Piazza will miss as a result of the injury the Mets recalled Mike Jacobs from Double A just in case. The team designated RHP Jose Santiago for assignment to make room for Jacobs.

All this did not stop the Mets from beating the Pirates 5-1. Tom Glavine had another good outing and some heads up baserunning by Beltran set up the win.
