Pitching was the key tonight as the Mets got dominant performances from all three pitchers they had trot out to the mound tonight. Oliver Perez surrendered a run in the first inning, but settled down nicely, scattering five hits and three walks over six innings, while striking out five.
Aaron Heilman pitched for the first time in three days, throwing two scoreless innings, striking out four. Billy Wagner came in and closed it out, striking out two to save it for Perez.
The Mets remain in first place for another day.
