Manuel Alvarez struck out 5 in his 2 innings of work, and now has a 3/27 BB/K in 19.1 AA innings, and overall 7/51 in 45 innings with a 1.40 era.

The Mets offense had 7 hits and a 2/6 BB/K ratio, while going 2 for 7 (.286) with RISP and leaving 5 on base.

Marshall Hubbard and Maldonado had multi hit games, while the top 3 in the order (Luis Hernandez (0 for 4, .298), Sean Ratliff and Nick Evans) went  a combined 0 for 12 with 5 Ks, they, along with Jose Coronado (0 for 3, run, BB, .226) took 0-fers.
