An Oasis in the Desert

The Mets responded to the monkey's challenge tonight and beat a tough Diamondbacks team. The young stars shined tonight. Jose Reyes went 4-5 with two triples and three runs scored. David Wright added a 3-5 hitting his 5th homerun of the season. John Maine had his 5th straight outing letting up 2 runs or less. The Mets just seem to like playing at Chase Field.

Other positives included the return of Moises Alou who makes the lineup look a lot better. Glad to see Ryan Church back in the 2 spot. The Mets have thrived when Church has batted second. Duaner Sanchez had a nice bounce back effort and all in all, a really good win for the Mets.

Things get tougher from here on this trip as the Mets will face Brandon Webb and Danny Haren before heading to Los Angeles to take on a hot Dodger team, but tonight they came out aggressively and were the ones providing the venom.
