Mets 4, Braves 3

Hero of the day: Moises Alou - just about the biggest effing homerun of the year

Orlando Hernandez pitched well except for that one stinky inning, Luis Castillo came up with a freaking huge hit to knock in two runs and tie the game late, and Moises Alou got off the schneid a bit with that tie-breaking blast in the eighth. Things got dicey in the ninth but Billy Wagner got a couple of groundballs when he needed them most and the Mets got their lead over the Braves back to four-and-a-half games.
