Tom Glavine's line from Game 1:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 7.0 8 1 1 1 4 0 103-62 60Glavine gave up a bunch of hits, but considering the Blue Jays have a bevy of right-handed mashers and grounders shoot across the artificial turf, a fine performance by Tommy.

And because he was the Mets' hero on Saturday, Darren Oliver's line:

Steve Trachsel's line from Game 3:
IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST GS 5.0 6 4 4 3 2 2 96-58 44It was something of a minor miracle that Trachsel even made it through five innings. Not exactly a great start, either, as he walked as many batters as he struck out and barely allowed fewer runs than innings pitched. Trax has won four straight starts despite only pitching one ballgame that might be characterized as "good". He has walked 38 batters and struck out 41 on the season, a ratio that must improve if Trachsel has any hope of begin even a mediocre starter for this club.
